Exchange 2007 - Export to PST from BKF/EDB

Hi!

I recently had a Server Crash of a SBS 2008 at a Customer (2 Harddisks died in Raid5 within a Day).

Data was backed up speratly and everything is there. The Emails were backed up with ntbackup. Unfortunatley i only saved the database and not the System Status.

So my situation is i have a bkf file, size around 80gb just before the backup.
My first try was to install a sbs2008 in Virtual Machine, name it like the old server and restore the bkf, so i got an edb file. I used "Stellar Phoenix Mailbox Recovery" to open the edb file and export all mailboxes to pst.

The export went fine but i got some problems:
-)  recurring appointments are saved as single appointments
-) when i click answer on an email in the "to field" there is only the person name written but not the email adress
-) some attachments are namend not correctly, instead of pdf its named pd or p
-) the german letters are not recognized like ä ö ü

After i saw this issues i bought another Program "Systools Exchange BKF to PST". But when exporting the mailboxes to PST it show me the same issues.

Does anyone of you know a way to extract the mailboxes correctly from the bkf/pst?
