I have sbs2003 running with exchange and last night it crashed and check disk "cleaned up" a bunch of files, and now the server is running erratically, barley at all. I plan on doing a clean os reinstall and recreating e users etc., but is there any way to recover the exchange data, particularly calendars, by saving specific files and then reopening them either on another machine or with software to extract to pst files. If so, which file(s) will I need to save from the server to keep my public data?

I would try to check the exchange database using eseutil and keep that database. Here is an article about that http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Exchange-ISINTEG-ESEUTIL.html

Also, you can try running sfc /scannow from a command prompt which will check and repair all system files. I would advise against doing a complete rebuild all of a sudden until you have some extra time to plan. I believe you can still repair this install.

Thanks and that helps some, but I am not clear on how to proceed. The exchange server is gone, and although I have one here in my own office, I am not sure I want to risk corrupting it with my clients exchange data files. I guess the best possible scenario would be to find a tool that converts the pub and priv database files into one or more PST files on a random workstation, without the Server or Exchange system available.
