Check Exchange 2010 Database information

I have an Exchange 2010 Database named RecoveryDB, I do not know how it got created. I can see the size of it around 90GB.
I would like to see when it got created and what mailboxes and items in it.
Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

I think you will need to mount the database but if its dismounted and you don't have a need for it...delete it :) You can use EMC to check who's mailboxes are in there by mounting it then doing a filter by database in the user management.

Open DB properties via EMC and you can see when created etc. If DB is not mounted that means it is not in use and can be deleted.

like i said you will need to mount the database to see what is in it. So mount the database and view it through EMC or use powershell get-mailboxdatabase -identy "databasename" | get-mailbox. and as said before you can view when the database was made by looking at the date on the file.
