I have a users Exchange archive mailbox witch gets Quarantined all the time.
After some research, i found out how to release the archiv mailbox from Quarantine, but after a few minutes the mailbox turns back to Quarantined state.
I tried to export the archive to a pst file, but the time is not enough to export it before the mailbox turns back to Quarantined state.

Can i turn off the Quarantine featrue fore the hole exchange 2013 mailbox server? So that i can export the corrupt archive to a pst file?
Or any tools to fix the corrupt mailbox?

Any workaround here?

Thank you very much for any help

king regards

You will need to use the New-MailboxRepairRequest to repair the corrupted archive mailbox. Run the below command in the Exchange Management Shell to detect and repair for all corruption types on the mailbox:
New-MailboxRepairRequest -Mailbox User -CorruptionType ProvisionedFolder,SearchFolder,AggregateCounts,Folderview -Archive

Open in new window

Keep in mind that the mailbox cannot be accessed while the repair runs. You can use the Get-MailboxRepairRequest cmdlet to check the status of the repair. See the below articles for more information on these cmdlets.
