Hello,

Some months ago I have migrated my 2007 Exchange to Exchange 2013.
Everything is working well but I need to export PST from my old Exchange 2007.
The only way I have is to use EDB file.
I have tested different software to extract data from EDB file but I only get one mailbox (SystemMailbox).
I don't see other mailboxes from my AD.  Data is in the file because PST file is 26Gb.
How can I get back data from my EDB file ?

Thx

I already tried several tools but I always get same problem.
I only see the SystemMailbox and I don't see all other users mailboxes.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Your database size could be 26Gb but it is possible you have not got any data.

When you use a database on Exchange, will using free space on disk to increase database file, thats normal.
But when you delete emails, database file remains with same size, because you need reclaim free space.

Could you tell us what procedure you followed to do migration? If your procedure was move mailbox to new server and after doing database backup, your database probably is empty.

My backup was made before the migration.  So I don't understand why I can access to the mailboxes.

Are you 100% sure you're either scanning the correct .EDB file or that the mailboxes weren't moved to the new Exchange 2013 server before you made the backup?

1) you either migrated the mailboxes or..
2) its whitespace. A backup software will not remove whitespace, so its most likely that. You might only have 5GB of actual data within the 26GB file..

are your sure that all mailbox migrate to Exchange 2013?
move mailboxdatabase will move the database to target database and remove the content from the original database.

if possible, run following command to check which mailbox store in this mailbox database:
Get-Mailbox | Where {$_.Database -Eq "database name"}| Select name,database
