Exchange 2007 Storage Group Corruption

Hello,
      We recently had an issue with our Exchange Server 2007. It has two storage groups and the second storage group was reporting a “bad page link error” and it was acting erratically when scheduling time and active sync, etc.. It stayed mounted so I created another storage group and moved all the mailboxes from storage group 2 to the new storage group. I did this with the advise of Experts Exchange and moved them with the skip count set to zero. All boxes moved with no issues. I have completed this and now there are not any mailboxes in storage group 2. My question is, should I remove storage group 2 or should I run eseutil on it? I would like to move half the mailboxes back to it as it was getting large before the move. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thank you

I would just drop the storage group and the databases completely. That means clearing out the logs and everything for tht storage group.
Don't bother repairing the databases as that brings in an unnecessary risk that the problem hasn't been resolved.

What you could do is create a new storage group, then populate it with two databases and move all of the mailboxes in to those two databases and drop the current live one. That will split the data up and provide you with clean databases.

Simon.
