FREE Priv.edb to PST tool? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am doing some work for a client who is on the fringe of going out of business, in fact I am offering my services for free.. They have an Exchange 2000 priv1.edb file I have been able to repair and successfully mount with Enstella but the $299 is not even a remote option. This edb file contains a few weeks of lost mail they would like to get at. Is there a freeware comparable tool out there or some other method of getting to this data? I'd like to avoid having to replicate their Exchange environment just to get at a few weeks of lost mail. 

    Thanks!

  • No there is nothing for free and while I understand that 299 seems like allot its a rather low cost tool and is good for going after an email or two but not so great if you want accuracy and completeness.  I work for Lucid8 and we make one of the top 3 competitive tools which are made by Lucid8, Ontrack, and Quest respectively.   All that aside since funds are restricted then the only other option would be do one of the following;

    1. Create a replicated environment as you pointed out and yes it takes time but its free :-)

    2. The other option would be to;

    A: Stop mail flow, i.e. do not allow users access to email and do not allow inbound messages

    B: Backup the current DB

    C: Replace with the previous copy that has the information you want to access

    D: Connect with outlook and extract the needed data

    E: Put the backed up EDB back in place, bring it up and restore mail-flow and allow users back in

  • many folks already said including to me that no free tools are available till now for edb pst export requirement. As it is sure that an edb converter application is required to do edb to pst file conversion if exchange server is no longer available. At this time, you should go with a feature-enriched and error-free application only.

    By considering our regular dependency on Exchange Server, my company implemented an multi-tasking and server-independent edb converter application to export priv.edb mailboxes into PST (also support pub.edb) especially when Exchange server is not available or dismounted. The utility is included with latest functions to recover emails from lost and damaged segments and export all mailboxes into PST.

  • As suggested by one from the above thread. I have recently tried EdbMails to repair my Exchange 2003 Server EDB file of size 51 GB. EdbMails recovered and extracted all the emails without any issues. I can see all my important mails have been recovered. EdbMails have not charged any money for this and they don't have any hidden charges as well. It is complete FREE service and it works great!

    I'm seeing few free tools in the thread for repairing and recovering an edb file , but unfortunately these tools doesn't work for edb file with big size, compatibility issue with different Exchange server versions, and inaccuracy in the final result. I've tested these utilities in my lab and it failed in lot of cases which I performed for testing.

    However, Stellar mailbox repair tool can be considered for this issue and any other similar issue with Exchange edb file. Ofcourse this is also not free, but better any other paid, free, and crappy software.

    Rest on users choice!

    Please don’t misguide to users. I tried this software & it is not free. The interface is terrible; the result is not as expected. Worst Software ever! SCAM. I requested to this forum editor to remove this post as they misguide the users. DO NOT USE EDBMails.
