Is there any trustworthy Exchange BKF repair tool? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to export some critical data (edb and log files) from the exchange bkf file but due to some networking problem, backup process got interrupted which made bkf file inaccessible. After searching a lot about this over Internet, I found that majority of the people have advised to use any utility for that.

    Can anyone suggest any efficient utility to export data from damaged exchange bkf file?

  • What ever utility you might find, keep in mind that if it does not have a complete of the Exchange EDB file inside of the BKF then more than likely you won't be able to use the EDB file.

    If your backup was stopped right in the middle of backing the EDB file(s) in to the BKF file, then you will pretty much be out of luck.  :-(

    From your description, the Exchange bkf file is corrupted when you export it due to some networking problem. Based on my knowledge, there is no inbuilt mechanism provided to repair your damaged Exchange backup file. Thanks for your understanding.

The software uses QFSCI technology to repair corrupt or damaged BKF files which can become corrupted due to CRC (cyclic redundancy check) errors, unexpected system shutdown, virus corruption, backup interruption and other issues that display errors like "Failed to open file", "The backup file is unusable".

  • There are lots of reasons which made interruption for the user at the time of working with exchange server. As we know the exchange server store its data in EDB, STM and LOG format by which users communicate with one to another. Files supported by Exchange Server sometime may be corrupted or damaged and there is no any particular reason which responsible for its corruption.

    At corruption time "BACKUP" is only the one way which helps user to retrieve all the data without modification. Now here I am sharing a question with their suitable solution What to do when we find corruption in Exchange BKF Files?

  • The bkf files are corrupted due to virus attacks, disk corruption, unexpected interruption in backup process, etc. and you can not repair such files without any bkf recovery utility. Such tool helps to repair all type of data corruption and enable you to easily accessible the bkf files. SysInfoTools is one of the good selection to repair the highly corrupted data.

  • Can anyone suggest any efficient utility to export data from damaged exchange BKF file?

    There are many software vendors available in the online market which provide third-party tools for recovering data from corrupt BKF files of Exchange Server. Few of them have been recommended here. One can try any one of them. What I can suggest here is that one should always try the free demo version of a third-party tool. Third-party tools might be dubious sometimes, therefore a smart user is he/she who uses the demo version first before purchasing the full version. 

    I can recommend you here smart Exchange BKF Recovery tool provided by Data-Recovery-Solutions. This tool can recover all three important files, i.e. EDB, STM and Log, from corrupt BKF files of Microsoft Exchange Server.
