Exchange User migrate

The good news is that it's possible to get most of the data back (all of it, if you were NOT using the default of "circular logging").
The bad news is that you'll have to pour over a rather lengthy docment to find the information that fits your exact situation...

OVERVIEW
1. Stop all Exchange services.
2. Determine the location of the database and logs for the directory service and information store service (identifiable in registry)
3. Copy the DIR.EDB file (it should be in the DSADATA directory) to the directory service database path.
4. Copy any directory service log files to the directory service log path.
5. Copy the PRIV.EDB file to the private information store database path.
6. Copy the PUB.EDB file to the public information store database path.
7. Copy any information store log files to the information store service log path.
8. Start the Exchange directory service.
9. From the command prompt, change to the EXCHSRVR\BIN

To continue from above...

9. From the command prompt, change to the EXCHSRVR\BIN directory and execute:
isinteg –patch
10. Start the information store service.


Also, here are where you can find the file locations:

Directory service log path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeDS\Parameters\Database log files path
Directory service database path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeDS\Parameters\DSA Database file
Information store service log path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\ParametersSystem\DB Log Path
Private information store database path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\ParametersPrivate\DB Path
Public information store database path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\ParametersPublic\DB Path
