We have an Exchange 2013 server where the database has been dismounted after the log file drive ran out of space. When I run an eseutil /mh "E:\Databases\Mailbox Database 0629442944.edb" I get the following.

The log files that it says are required are available and I've tried running

eseutil /r e00 /l "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 0629442944" /d "E:\Databases\Mailbox Database 0629442944.edb" /a /i

and I get the following error

Operation terminated with error -541 (JET_errLogFileSizeMismatch, actual log file size does not match JET_paramLogFileSize) after 0.203 seconds.

What would be the next step to recovering this?
