Extracting an exchange backup

Hi,

I have another question open regarding restoring an exchange backup after a crash but is proving to be very difficult.

Does anyone know of any free or cheap reliable third party software that will extract the backed up files either into .pst files or even their original files.

I'm really struggling here and need help please

If you have an Exchange backup, Ontrack Powercontrols simulates an Exchange server allowing you to restore to it. You can then open the database and do what you need to do.

However, the phrases free or cheap when used with MS Exchange seldom mix and Ontrack is not cheap - but it may help you.

There is plenty of EDB recovery software out there, unfortunately none of it is free.

The more feature rich the product is the more expensive the product is. Fortunately a few of them have downloadable demos which can show you what data is recoverable from your EDB.

Lucid8.com's Digiscope has a free demo and is very feature rich, but unfortunately I think it is expensive.

Have a look at my post here. Its a bit long but it works, its free and you get to learn a few things.
There is a tool listed at the bottom of the post if you want to pay for something that can do it for you.

Thanks for the mention MegaNuk3, and FYI we have very affordable project based licensing.  For more information see my profile

I think a 1 day 1 store license for $100 would sell well cause you generally only need to extract and very badly damaged EDB once before you sort out what corrupted it in the first place and stop it from happening again...

Also every size company can afford to pay $100 to get their Exchange DB back up and running.

I agree customers would love that pricing model, however,based upon support, R&D etc its not a sustainable model at that pricing level :-(   should probably move the conversation offline as well eh?  My email address is in my profile.
