Cannot restore Microsoft Information Store

Last Modified: 2015-04-27
I've got a corrupt Exchange database and all attempts to repair it have failed. There was a similar corruption some months ago and I recovered by restoring a Backup Exec backup. This time however, it won't restore. It goes through right to the end and then fails with "Final error: 0xe000fe7a - An error occurred while accessing Microsoft Exchange Server. Check the application event log on the Exchange Server for more details". I've looked in the Application Event log but that doesn't seem to help much.
No config changes have been made to the server since I last did a restore so in theory this should work.
Windows SBS2003 and Exchange 2003

Got to keep this thing running for the next couple of months until the new server arrives :-(
