How do I restore the public folders in Exchange 2003?

I then tried restoring just the Public Folder Store from the previous night’s backup but I can’t get it to mount.  

I tried restoring the Public Folder Store:

Run the HARD REPAIR by using the the command ESEUTIL /P "path of the database"

BTW, this is teh command that is used to crteate the backups:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntbackup.exe backup "@C:\Backup\exchbu.bks" /n "ExchangeBackupThur.bkf" /d "Set created Thursday" /v:yes /r:no /rs:no /hc:off /m normal /j "exchbu" /l:s /f "R:\Backup\HTS\xxxxcorpemail\ExchangeBackupThur.bkf"
The ID no: C1041724 indicates that  there is insufficient free disk space on the drive that contains the databases that you are trying to mount. .

Check the Free Disk Space on the server.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

I'll check the freespace, but just looking at it initially there is at least 7GB of space available.

One other thing I wanted to note, I did try eseutil:

Some additional info:

Free space is 9.54 GB

And the event viewer shows:

Following the instructions at did not work.

I moved all the log files from

D:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA

to a temp directory and then copied all the log files from:

C:\temprest\First Storage Group
(The location that was refrenced during the RESTORE and the logfile range referenced by the eseutil /cm command.)

I then tried remounting the Public Folder DB in ESM and I get the same C1041724 error.

Okay, running the hard repair...
