I have a SBS 2003 production server. My database was getting to be too large so I decided to run an offline defrag over the weekend. It failed with Jet error 1022 disk I/O something. I looked into the error and Microsoft said that the database was corrupted. Can I created backup PSTs of everyone's email account to their local machine, create a new exchange database/Information Store and then connect them back to the new database with their emails in tact or is that not possible? Or is it the wrong thing to do? They will not upgrade their server yet as it is still under warranty. I just need help with what is possible and the safest thing to do. I have heard that doing a repair on the database using ESEUTIL could cause some major issues. I also need to minimize downtime for the server.
Thanks in advance,
