i have tried to run a repair by typing:

eseutil /r "E00" /l "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 2013062823" /d "D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 2013062823"

however i get the following:

Recovery has indicated that there might be a lossy recovery option.  Run recovery with the /a argument.

when i run it with a /a on the end i get the same thing.

any ideas?

thanks!

Have you tried running the eseutil /p command to repair the database? This will usually get it out of a "dirty shutdown" state.

Hi,

As your Exchange Server 2010 database is in dirty shutdown state, then I believe that you can try in some third party tools as well which can repair and recover this exchange database. You can ask the community forums to provide you suitable cost effective and efficient tools from which you can choose the one which best suites your requirements.
