Practical tips to help you in exchange recovery through EDB to PST conversion

Sometimes due to corruption of EDB file in the Microsoft Exchange Server you are unable to retrieve and access your emails, contacts, notes, calendar and other data that are in the Exchange Server, this eventually renders Outlook files in your computer unusable. In such a scenario you may require an immediate Exchange recovery process by converting EDB files to PST.

Exchange recovery is a complex process which involves recovering corrupt data from the Microsoft Exchange Server by converting EDB files to PST files. Whenever an EDP file gets corrupted the retrieval of important data like emails, contacts and notes becomes almost impossible without the help of specialized tools. To resolve such problems in the Exchange Server, Microsoft has provided an integrated tool known as Eseutil.exe for soft database recovery from the Exchange Server.

An important point to note here is that soft database recovery cannot help you with the recovery in all EDB corruption scenarios. Moreover, while performing a soft recovery process you may encounter various types of errors. One such error is mentioned below for reference:

“Operation terminated with error – 1003”

If such errors happen to occur, the whole exchange recovery process comes to a halt and all the databases that are in the Exchange Server remains inaccessible to you. The only way to resolve such a problem is to convert the data from EDB to PST format.

There are various reasons as to why EDB file in the Exchange Server gets corrupted. Some of the most important reasons for EDB corruption are either missing or damaged log files or invalid API (Application Programming Interface). For whatever reasons the EDB file gets corrupted the ultimate result could be quiet damaging as the PST data becomes inaccessible to you. Therefore, it is always wise to use the integrated tool provided by Microsoft to convert the EDB file to PST.

After converting the EDB file to PST you can access all your precious data through Microsoft Outlook programme. The converted file will work as individual PST file after the recovery and you can easily access all your important emails, contacts, calendar, notes and other information. However, if the integrated tool ‘Eseutil.exe’ is unable to convert all EDB files to PST then you should definitely take the help of external third party recovery tools which can recover almost all the important information stored in the Exchange Server.

One of the effective tools available in the market today is the “DataNumen Exchange Recovery” programme, which can recover almost all the corrupt files in the Exchange Server. Using this tool you can effortlessly convert EDP file to PST without any pain and error that you may encounter while using the free integrated tool.
