We have exchange server 2003 and this AM the private and public mailboxes are not mounting. However, the Informatio Store service is running without glitch. In-hosue IT went to clean up the logs as the drive was running out of room. He does not believe he deleted the private and public store files but is not certain. I don't think would have been allowed if the information store was running in any case.
We are trying to confirm whether, if the IS is runing as a service, if it is likley that the private and public stores are there but perhaps something else is going on? Is it likely that he deleted the files accidentally? Finally, if so, is there any way outside of a backup (one year old) that these can be re-created somehow?
