We have an Exchange 2003 SP2 server on 2003, whose store got corrupted after IBM RAID got bad-stripes and bad-blocks.
Unfortunately the backups were discovered out to be out of date, so now we facing almost a month worth of data loss (and very certain ire of management), unless we manage to merge the data from that old back-up, and users Outlooks.
So my question, if the following possible?
Set a dial-tone store to let users work now while we sort out Exchange
Restore the month-old backup to a new store
Merge the old back-up and the dial-tone store mails to a new store
Merge the users Outlooks with the new store, producing a store as full as possible
Is this possible, and what would be the best approach to do this?
