  • Updated 4 years ago
I have an exchange server with a .edb that is in a dirty shutdown state. I have 2 storage groups. The second storage group will not mount due to dirty shutdown. That database is on e: drive, the transaction logs are in C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\Second Storage Group I tried to run eseutil /mh e:\exdb2 but I get an error saying that the file is locked.
What is the exact command I need to run to repair the .edb?

Here is another good option available at which recovers edb files from corrupt or inaccessible exchange server database and retains the original structure and properties of the recovered items . This utility converts edb files data to outlook pst files data. It extracts mailboxes from offline corrupt edb files and move it to live exchange server, pst, eml, msg, html, Text, rtf file or Office 365.
