Exchange 2007 mailbox inaccessible

We have an urgent problem with one of our mailboxes under Exchange 2007.
Few days ago we initiated move request from one storage group to another, while the process was running, the active server went down due to hardware issue.
Once we brought it up, we found out that the mailbox is no longer accessible via OWA or any known methods.

We tried to re-move the mailbox but we're getting error:
Opening source mailbox. Failed to open mailbox with error: The operation failed., error code: -1056749262

At this point we started to be clueless, none of the solutions we found on the net was helpful, so we decided to export the mailbox to PST and recreate it.

Now when we try to export the mailbox to PST we're getting:
Error occurred in the step: Approving object
. An unknown error has occurred.

Please advise, the user is offline for 2 days already

    Was the move mailbox Source and Target the same server ?
    Does the Mailbox shows connected in EMC ?
    What if you send an email to the Mailbox ?
