We had to install a clean SBS 2011 OS on a Server and start over- all data was copied from the previous (same hardware).  However, when I attempt to Move Mailbox Database Path in Exchange to what was their existing Mailbox Database, I get the following Failed message:

The .edb file path is not available.  There is already a file named 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Mailbox Database Folder\Mailbox Database.edb' in the file system on server
Parameter name: EdbFilePath

Any help for the appropriate process and order of dismounting the current database and moving to the backed up database file is appreciated.  Need to get mailbox data restored after a clean Windows load.
