    Seems that this was the problem working directory did not exists anymore.
    I will reboot the server tonight and see if this will help.

    I had the drive mapped to f: but that didn't work,
    put it back to C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mdbdata and that worked.


    This problem occurs because the information about the folder in which the Exchange Server database and log files are stored is written to the Windows registry in the following location (where C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mdbdata is the folder in which the database and log files are stored):
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\ParametersSystemValue name: Working Directory
    Value type: REG_SZ
    Value data: C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MdbdataThe message conversion process uses the Working Directory parameter as its temporary directory during the conversion process. If the folder structure is missing, or if the registry entry points to location that is not correct, the conversion process is not successful
