Hi,
I've recently removed a Recovery Database from Exchange 2010 but I never deleted the files from the disk because I knew I would need them later on.  How do I get the database back into Exchange 2010?  I tried using the GUI with the "New Mailbox Database" command but it fails because the files already exist and I'm unable to find the appropriate command for PowerShell.  Anyone?

Move the database files and log files of the recovery database to a different location then,

New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery -Name RDB1 -Server <servername>

Mount and Dismount the new recovery database and move back the original recovery database.
