Restoring Deleted Mailbox

By jerenzo ·
I have a small Exchange '03 Server. While rebuilding a user profile and moving his 40,000 emails from the temporary Network User to his new User (same name as old user) the server ran out of memory and lost about 10,000 emails, contacts and calendar for this user. Basically, it lost whatever was moved back to the new user profile/inbox before it ran out of memory. When I went into the Exchange Mgt, First Storage Group/Mailbox Store to recconnect the mailbox (which I could see) it gave me the following error...

/0=First Organization/OU=First Administration Group/CN=Rob
This legacy Excahnge DN Value is already being used by 'CN=Rob H, OU=SBS Users, OU=Users, OUMybusinessDC=TR,DC=local

One other note: The back up tape for that night was not changed out the following night. So, the back up is no good.

Does the mailbox exist in the old temp user? im not 100% sure what you need to do here, so if you could provide me with some more information that would be great.

Are you trying to reconnect the old or the new mailbox?

This will help u reconnect the disconnected mailbox to any test user:

Right-click Mailbox Recovery Center and choose Add the Mailbox Store
Select the disconnected mailbox and choose "Find match"
The wizard finished with the message "conflicts detected"
Right-click the same mailbox again and choose "Resolve
In the User Matching screen, click Browse and find the test mailbox you identified earlier
then right-click the mailbox again and choose "reconnect"
