hi, I had an 2011 sbs die on me, I've managed to get onto the c drive of the server using a mini xp boot disk and copy the priv1.edb file

I do have a Symantec backup. And thought that copying the edb direct maybe the quickest way to restore it. But using eseutil /mh on it, has reported it to be in dirty shutdown.

I don't really want to do a fully repair as its a 130gb file and would take a day

I need to rebuild my server first. Is it worth doing the restore from my Symantec backup or is that likely to be in dirty shutdown to. I never restored from Symantec, So unsure if this is  the case.
