From  EMS run : “ESEUTIL /R E01 /L “path of logfiles” /D “Path of database” /I” , where: E01 is a check point file ( should be located on logs file path) Has a chk extension and starts with E followed with 2 numbers ( not necessary 01).

after that
check again:
Eseutil /mh “Path of the database *.edb” . it should show clean state.
