Unable to run ESEUtil in recovery mode to bring the database into a clean shutdown state.

Created a new recovery database on Exchange 2010, using this guide:

http://exchangeserverpro.com/restore-individual-mailbox-exchange-2010

But when I try to run this command:

eseutil /r E00 /i /l "C:\RecoveryTest\C_\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\maildb1\" /d "C:\RecoveryTest\C_\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\maildb1\maildb1.edb"

I get this error:

Usage Error: Invalid argument 'Files\Microsoft\Exchange'. Options must be preceded by '-' or '/'.

I tried single quotes instead of double quotes but that didn't change anything.

The log files are in the same folder as the .edb file and I've checked the path repeatedly to make sure it is correct.

Is it possible there is a character-length limit on this command?

What you can do is to navigate to C:\RecoveryTest\C_\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\maildb1 in cmd windows and there run the command with the fuul path to exe, and put the databases without the path.

For example

"c:\program files\...\eseutil.exe" /r E00 /i /d maildb1.edb

replace "c:\program files\...\eseutil.exe" for the full path to eseutil.exe
