Run eseutil in the mode to create a new db. I ran into that problem years back. It worked well.

Do not use the Eseutil repair option when backup is available

I do have a backup but do not really want to loose 2 days email what is the best thing to do ?

Hello,

You should have listened to the advice in the technet article. You would not have lost any email as the transaction logs would have replayed into the database. That is what the transaction logs are for. Are the transaction logs still intact? If so, restore from the last good backup you have.

Repairing a database with eseutil should only be done as a last resort and after repairing, you should immediate plan to move all your mailboxes to a new database.

Yes, as long as the transaction logs are on the disk, perform a restore from backup.

When you say you copied an older file, what exactly do you mean? Did you perform a restore from an Exchange backup? If not, where did this older copy come from?
