Exchange 2000

By peter_rodrick ·
On a Small Business Server 2000 platform, the files priv1.edb and pub1.edb were moved to make space. The corresponding *.stm files were not. The edb files contain about 3gig of email. Is there anyway to revive them. No back is available.

Exchange 2000

by timwalsh In reply to Exchange 2000

How were the files moved? If you just dragged and dropped them to a new location (as opposed to using the Exchange System Manager), you may be too late depending on what else you have done. Essentially, Exchange doesn't know where they are. Sinceyou have no backup, you don't have a lot to lose (at least not anymore than you may have already lost). I would try the following:

Move the .edb files back to their original locations. Using Exchange System Manager, right click the mailbox store and choose Properties. Click the Browse button next to the file path and choose the new location. Do the same with the public folder store. Hopefully, this will solve your problem.

Good luck.
