We have a corrupt exchange .edb file that we need to recover email from.
I have tried the exeutil soft recovery option, this did not work. I havent tried the hard recovry yet because the file is 600GB and reading up say its takes 3-4 hours per 3GB ish, this would take an ice age so im exploring other options first
The edb was part of a Raid 10 array that 2 of the drives for some reason marked themselves as foreign. We have to clear the virtual drive and reassign the disks to the new VD. All the data is still there. I dont think this is a factor but worth mentioning just in case.
The idea I had was to use some third party software that claims it can mount a corrupt edb and get what I can, but I cant even copy the edb file to another drive as it keeps failing saying the file is corrupt.
Any help or advice I could get at this point would be very appreciated.
The database is currently marked as dirty shutdown. I tried reading how to make it a clean shutdown but couldnt seem to get anyhting to work.
