Goal: use external utility to retrieve old emails from edb file

I have restored from an old backup the complete Exchange 2010 mailbox directory with the following files:

e0b0000*.log (appr. 2000 logfiles)
2 xml files

I want to import the logfiles into the edb with eseutil.

I tried to execute: eseutil /r e0b /i /d /a

I get the following error: Operation terminated with error -528 (JET_errMissingLogFile, current logfile missing).

From the backup, there was no e0b.chk file. I have copied this from the live database.

Is there any way to import the logfiles into the edb?

The database is NOT live, I have restored into a different disk.

Kind regards,
IT Architect
