At times when you try retrieving your data from MS Exchange Server, the process fails and you receive error message mentioned below:

Access denied to database Mailbox Store (SERVER2K3).

WARNING: \\SERVER2K3\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (SERVER2K3) is a corrupt file.

This file cannot verify.

Database or database element is corrupt

This error message means that you might lose your important data and this condition is the result of one of the following reasons:

  • Either you do not have required permissions to access the database
  • Some of the precious Exchange Server files are missing
  • EDB database files are corrupt and data has become inaccessible.

In order to fix this problem, you can have appropriate permission from the administrator and try again. Either you can repair your Exchange Server by using Eseutil.exe tool or Exchange Server can be repaired by using third party Exchange Server repair tool.

Corruption of Exchange Server database is a very crucial situation and it needs to be repaired as early as it can be. Eseutil.exe is an inbuilt Exchange Server utility that enables user to verify and repair .edb files. However, if you want to fix this corruption error then you will have to perform EDB recovery.
