Need to Extract mail from .edb Exchange 2007

Good Day

Need help on the following.

We recently upgraded our Exchange server with larger hard drives. due to size limits.

I installed 2 x 1 TB drives in RAID 1 for my operating system and removed th 80 GB drives. Then did a fresh install of Windows 2008 SBS. Previously Windows 2003 x64 Standard was installed with Exchange 2007 Standard.

Before I installed new drives I did an Extract-Mailbox to get all necasarry mail into .pst, as I could not do a Demote and Promote of DC to SBS.

Now 2 x of the mailboxes does not have all the mail it should, some folders are empty.

I still have the old drivers  and did not remove the data as yet. How can I extract the mail from the .edb for only those 2 x mailboxes needed.

Regards

Gaaf

Other than rebuilding the old server there isn't any other option other than hiring a consultant that has access to a 3rd party product to do it.

If you dont want to spend money on the 3rd Party S/w. Mount old database in RSG and mearge the mails for the mailbox.

you won't be able to mount the database in an RSG as it's from a different exchange organisation.

By any chance did you take a backup image of the old exchange server? IF Yes.. you may be in luck to some more options..  Does your backup do brick level (before the upgrade?) something else to think of.. Easiest way is to buy 3rd party of course as demazter mentioned.
