I am logged in to Exchange server 2010, with domain admin account which is member of the Exchange Organization Management Role.

when i go to C:\program files\Microsoft\Exchange server\v14\mailbox
there is an edb file (Recovery.edb)when I try to delete it I get the message "Acccess Denied".

it is not related to any database, there used to RecoveryDB database ,but has been removed.

I am not sure if there is a way to delete the .edb file

Thank you

You can try to after some time.

Make sure Recovery DB is dismounted state or deleted from Exchange

other wise you can stop\restart the Exchange information store service. then you can try, it should deleted.
