extract .pst files from .edb
Posted on 2014-02-19
I have a question about a situation that I am in.
I have a number of backups from 2012 & 2013 created by backup exec from our exchange environment. I want to restore data for a couple of mailboxes. However, typical backup exec procedures just aren't working out. I believe that I have the data, I just don't have a way of getting it into a usable format.
So, I'd like to simply extract .pst files from the .edb files. my .edb files range from 100-200GB. I don't want to push the data back into my exchange environment.
So, what methods / procedures / tools might be available for extracting data from an .edb file and creating a .pst file from it. I've identified an exchange recovery tool from SysTools. This seems to work, but it is a bit slow and I can't help but to wonder if there is a Microsoft tool available. I just don't want to have to mount the database by exchange or affect my live exchange environment.
Any suggestions? I don't mind paying a few hundred dollars if the tool works well.
