Corrupt Mailstores

    Hi

    Just over 24 hours ago, my SBS 2k3 server froze - it subsequently appears to
    have been due to a disk fault.

    Generally, things do not appear to be too catastrophic, apart from the fact
    that neither the main Mailstore, nor the Public Folders will now mount.

    An attempt (on copied data) to run Eseutil /r E00 resulted in

    "Operation terminated with error -514 (Jet_errBadLogVersion, Version of log
    file is not compatible with Jet version)"

    What the heck, it was a COPY of the data, so we threw ESEutil /p against
    Priv1.edb, which appeared to process okay.


    However, when we THEN try to run ISINTEG against priv1.edb

    (ISINTEG -s KS-Alpha01 -fix -test alltests , where KS-Alpha01 is the server
    name)

    We get the error message "Isinteg cannot initiate verification process".


    "Living dangerously", we tried mounting the Priv1 database anyway, which
    resulted in System manager reporting

    "The database files in this store re corrupted ID no: c104173b)"


    Or, if we delete/rename all log files and try to mount the stores, we get:-

    "An Internal processing error has occurred. Try restarting the Exchange
    System Manager or the Microsft Exchange Information store service, or both.
    ID no c1041724"


    Needless to say, due to a set of circumstances (I know !), we do NOT have a
    recent Exchange backup.

    PS LOADS of free disk space

    Quite simply - help !

    It would not be a "complete" disaster if we have to lose both priv1.edb and
    pub1.edb, but between them they hold a LOT of correspondence with customers
    etc going back serveral years, so losing a day or so's-worth of mail would be
    okay, losing several years less so !

    Many thanks in advance for any assistance.
