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

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.

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:

Following the instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/328639 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.
