Hi Guys,

I have an interesting issue, after replacing a faulty HDD and allowing the RAID to rebuild successfully, a single user mailbox acted weirdly and i had to investigate and follow the usual routes and causes. Ultimately nothing worked an i created a new user in AD with a new mailbox account which was working correctly,

The disconnected mailbox will not reconnect to any other user account and i am afraid it may be corrupted, but before i pull the plug i thought of asking for help. Following is a shortened version of the message i got on the user pc, in hindsight i should have gone offline end exported all to PST but........
"Your mailbox has been temporarily moved to ... A temporary mailbox exists, but might not have all of your previous data. You can connect to the temporary mailbox or work offline with all of you"

Any solutions or suggestions or even is there a fee tool to convert an ost to pst??
