Exchange 2010 updated with service packs, and SBS 2011 (WIndows server 2008).

After a hardware failure we had to run the Exchange server with an empty database for a while to receive/send. Now I have managed to restore the old database.

So I have two normal databases at the same server and want to merge them, i.e. copy the content from the temporary one (that one is very small) to the main database.
Can anyone help me with the exact command?

Temp db name: New
Temp db location: d:\temp\new.edb
Size: 1 GB

Main db name: Mailbox database
Main db location: d:\Exchange\database\Mailbox Database\mailbox database.edb
Size: 110 GB

I can take them both offline (unmount them) if needed..

Thanks in advance
