When we attempt to mount our database we are getting the following error.
--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Failed to mount database 'Mailbox Database'.

Mailbox Database
Failed
Error:
Exchange is unable to mount the database that you specified. Specified database: TEMPSERVER\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database; Error code: MapiExceptionCallFailed: Unable to mount database. (hr=0x80004005, ec=-1213)
.
Tried to run eseutil /mh and got the following error.
Initiating FILE DUMP mode...
Error: Access to source database 'Mailbox database.edb' failed with Jet error -1
022.
Operation terminated with error -1022 (JET_errDiskIO, Disk IO error) after 0.16
seconds.

Moved the database to a different location and still got the same error message.
Information store is running and database is not mounted.

I suppose that would be important.
It is Exchange 2007 running on Server 2008 and Power outage.

Not sure - backup drive is not available.
Currently running CHKDSK on drive to make sure.

Did u restore or copy the database from another media. If so right click on the database from EMC and go to properties and make sure  "This database can be over written by restore" option is checked.
