Disconnected Mailboxes after performing a mailbox move

Hi

I have an Exchange 2007 Mailbox server, which had accumulated significant white space. I performed a mailbox move to another storage group, recreated a new blank DB. I then moved all the mailboxes to the new DB. I then moved this DB back into the original Storage Group.

While this process was successful, I noticed that all the mailboxes had shown up in the "Disconnected Mailboxes"

Could someone please explain why this happened and how can I solve this before anything drastic occurs.

This can often happen when moving from one server to another but I have never noticed it when moving from one database to another.  Then again, to be honest, I have never checked.

Is it all the live mailboxes you are seeing?  I suspect it's just the cleanup that hasn't finished removing the old mailbox, when you move a mailbox it actually creates a new mailbox and moves all the data o it then deletes the old mailbox so this is what you will be seeing.

It's nothing to worry about.
