Exchange 2007 Database copy help
Posted on 2011-10-25
Hi all, we are about to get some support to help us with an Exchange Backup issue and possible corrupted Transaction Logs. Before we do this I was wondering if it was at all possible to simply dismount the Exchange Mailbox Database, then physically copy the Exchange Server\Store\Mailbox Database.edb file to a save place (spare disk or something) as a backup prior to working on Exchange? We currently have no real backup, so would like to take a copy of the store as it is.
Should everything go rather wrong, can we simple copy the saved Mailbox Database.edb back to it's original location and re-mount the store?
