I recently had a server crash which contained both files and Exchange email data. The backup was able to recover the exchange databases and I was able to extract all user data except one mail box which has emails with attachments but no content in the body of the email. Esutil is reporting that the .edb file is in a dirty state. Is there a repair tool that can correct the database that’s currently in a dirty state? The Exchange version is Exchange 2003 with Service Pack 2 installed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
