Exchange 2010 corrupt mailbox

so I have a 2.4TB mailbox that was setup as a journal reciept...well needless to say I inherited this one...oh and no backups of the EDB...once I discovered it I imeaditly switch to a new journal and setup process for doing monthly EDBs/mailboxes...however the one in question passes eseutil /k, /r, /p, /d but still show million items in the mailbox and when opens shows nothing...OWA errors out...also when I do new-mailboxrepairrequest it states integrity issue 1008 (yet eseutil /g says ok)...the box has 512GB of ram, 16 cores, exchange sp2 ru5v2 and 10tb of storage...also tried a gui move and no love (complained of memory)

Buddy 2.4TB Mailbox .... i have never seen or heard in my career awful Admin work :(

Anyways i dont know how Exchange or OS can cache 2.4Tb and allow move what i can best say is go with some 3rd party and Extract 4-5GB per PST and delete content or try with Export Mailbox for every week and see if you can extract and delete data to preserve data and smaller its size at the same time

there is nothing much you can do here. last try you can check Microsoft, if they have anyway to fix this huge mailbox.

I would download this and try it
http://www.nucleustechnologies.com/Exchange-Server-Data-Recovery.html

i had great results with it

not exactly ccheap though but much cheaper than calling microsoft i can tell you :)

the support is very good, they developed once a fix/version specially for me when a client had a failed db that the program wasn't able to fix

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I did try moving this DB file to recovery flagged DB and that was no love...
