  • The thing about a corrupted PRIV1.EDB file is that depending on the type of corruption, you might lose a single message and you might lose the entire file.  The damage to the file might be in the data portion of the file or it might be in the portion of the file (the first 5MB or so) that defines the database and the tables.

    Before attempting anything make sure you have a good backup. 

    As Terence suggested, run ESEUTIL (and make sure you have plenty of extra disk space).

    You may need to run it a second time.

    Afterwards, run ISINTEG and run all tests so that any damage to the structure of a message or a mailbox can be fixed before you let users go back to work.

    Good luck!

  • You must try Exchange Server Repair Toolbox restoring information from damaged Microsoft Exchange Server databases. More information here: http://www.exchangeserver.repairtoolbox.com/

    Solutions below will provide you more variants:

    Exchange administrators can take the help of Eseutil and Isinteg utilities to repair corrupt exchange databases. Both Eseutil.exe and Isinteg.exe utilities are inbuilt with MS Exchange Server and facilitate soft and hard database recovery from the corrupt Exchange Server.

    Do the following steps to run Eseutil.exe from command prompt:

    1. Click on Start>Run
    2. In the run box, type “cmd” and press “ok
    3. Go to C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin directory
    4. Type Eseutil.exe in command line

    If EDB files are severely damaged, then you should use Eseutil/p command. The command line to repair severely damaged private or public EDB file is:

    Eseutil /p C:\Program files\Exchsvr\mdbdata\ primary name.EDB

    Run Isinteg.exe for integrity check of repaired EDB databases. The command line will appear like this:

    Isinteg –s {Exchange Server name}-fix-test all tests

  • To recover Exchange EDB file we have two inbuilt utilities ‘Eseutil’ and ‘Isinteg’ provided by Microsoft Exchange server to retrieve priv.edb mailbox and recovers data from corrupted EDB files. These tools recovers minor corrupted EDB file. But sometimes these commands do not guarantee to work on highly corrupted EDB files. So you need to use third party application Exchange Server Recovery Tool to overcome this problem. This software can recover intact data of priv.edb as well as pub.edb folders.

  • AFAIK, there's no tool to repair EDB file. But still you can try some built-in repair tools provided by Microsoft itself. Eseutil and Isinteg are two tools which can help you repair EDB file. Refer to this blog post - http://wordpress.semnaitik.com/2014/04/19/repair-exchange-database/

    Thanks.
