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:

Backup of " XXXXCORPEMAIL04\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group", Restored to"XXXXCORPEMAIL04\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group"

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:

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

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.
