Export .EDB to PST

I am recovering mailboxes from a .edb file. Is exmerge the only free way to export the data into a pst file and then import it into each users outlook?

Running Exchange 2010  on SBS 2011

These are a couple I found when I had difficulty restoring an exchange server. I ended up recovering the server and did not actually use them.

For  Ex 2003 yes. Are you using any backup tool check with vendor if that help.

Like for me when I was using Ex2003 we use ontrack tool to restore user pst from backup  for that that we create recovery storage group thn we map the database it will show all user list for particular database basis.

You are using Exchange 2010 so I would definitly recommend using Powershell to accomplish this. Exmerge has a 2GB limit on mailboxes. To accomplish this with powershell use the below syntax below...

Export-Mailbox -Identity <username> -PSTFolderPath "c:\pstfiles\" -BadItemLimit 100000

This will export a single mailbox based on the username you specify and save the pst file to c:\pstfiles directory.

Note: you need to give yourself Full Mailbox permissions in order to export someone's mailbox. If you want help/advice on how to script this to do multiple mailboxes let me know.

Will.

If the database is mounted please check this
http://exchangeserverpro.com/export-mailboxes-exchange-server-2010-sp1/
Here is the command to export the entire organization.
foreach ($i in (Get-Mailbox)) { New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox $i -FilePath "\\Exch-backup\l\PSTs\2013\December\17-12-13\$($i.Alias).pst" -baditemlimit 50 -acceptlargedataloss }

If the database is not mounted please check these

Hi,

To perform the manual import of the data present in EDB to PST format, I can suggest you to try the link given below:

http://geekswithblogs.net/exportexchangeservermailboxtopst/archive/2013/10/28/154479.aspx

Moreover, there are many third party tools also available in the market which can do such operations quickly and without any error. You can ask the community to get a knowledge of such type of tools.

Hello Allanore,

You can export .edb file to pst using exmerge and recovery sttorage group as well.

You use Power-Shell command to Export the data from exchange edb file to pst format, use the command given below.

Step 1- Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Powershell.e2010
Step 2- New-MailboxExportRequest –Mailbox <mailbox-name> -FilePath <file-path>

Be careful while executing this command because it may delete the corrupted edb file and you may lose your data.
