If I understand when you have a corrupt exchange DB in a certain drive  and we have anoth available drive , we can just create a new DB with the same name as the corrupted one and copy the logs files from the old location to new location and users will be able to  connect and send /recieve new emails . They will not be able to see the old emails until we restore the old DB from back to the new location.

is this correct statement?
is there anything else that needs to be done after that?

thanks

what you are talking about is dial tone recover, these 2 articles should explain it to you very clearly.

that s a good link.
But when moving database to a different location, is there anything to considere before and after the moving operation, other than the available space.
because some articles talk about the ESEUTIL , but I am not sure when this tools comes into play when it is about moving DB to a different location.

did you go over the articles ? it describes exactly what you are looking for.

eseutil is to repair or defrag a db, it doesn't really have anything to do with the subject at hand (unless to replay the log files if it wasn't selected during the restore operation)
