Can i mount a restored shadow copy of the EDB file?
Posted on 2014-08-21
My client had a power outage, and when the server was brought back up, the EDB was 0 k. I did a "restore previous version" and now have the file again. It was dated yesterday. What are the repercussions of mounting this version of the store. the client PCs have their mailboxes in cached mode, so I am unsure whether they will sync back up to the server, or do I need to export the OST to PSTs and import once the users are reconnected?
I know there may be a disk issue, so I created a new DB, and will move the clients to that DB. The PUB, btw, seems unaffected.
Also, if I was to use the Microsoft backup to an external USB, how would I go about restoring the exchange store? Does it even back that up?
