Due to a server crash I had to completely reinstall the SBS 2011, Standard.
I tried to restore files out of the backup this morning. But then the server got the same booting error again. So tried to restore only parts as: applications
My need is to restore stuff out of the exchange server. (mailboxes, eMails and so on).
There were less than 10 users in the system. I restored the files in a different folder:
  win_old
There I saw two .edb-files there. How can I import them into the new valid working .edb-files ?
Application restore to the old place C:\blabla didn't work, since Windows didn't let me. :-(
Is there a GUI-operation for this ? Or do I need theird party tools or the shell ?

I didn't do this myself. I asked for an exchange admin to do this. He imported the old DB as the recovery-database. The rest was imported via command-line 1 one 1. Very long process though but working. Thank your djsharma for your answer.
