Locate EDB Files. You MUST Read

Exchange administrators usually do not have to interact directly with the EDB storage folders unless they need to restore data or create a backup. So, it won’t come as a surprise if you don’t know the default location of your EDB files. In fact, the default location of Exchange Database Files varies from one version to another. And if you know the location of EDB files, it will be easier for you to fix Exchange related issues and errors, especially when you are using inbuilt features to fix EDB corruption.

 

Where you can find EDB files?

 

If you are using Exchange Server 2000 & 2003, you can locate your EDB files at:

 

C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA\Priv1.edb

 

C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA\Pub1.edb

 

If you are using Exchange Server 2007, you can locate your EDB files at:

 

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database.edb
C:\Program\Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\First Storage Group\Public Folder Database.edb

 

If you are using Exchange Server 2010, you can locate your EDB files at:

 

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox Database\Mailbox Database.edb
C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Public Folder Database\Public Folder Database.edb

 

If you are using Exchange Server 2013, you can locate your EDB files at:

 

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Mailbox\Mailbox database Name\Mailbox database Name.edb

 

If you are using Exchange Server 2016, you can locate your EDB files at:

 

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Mailbox\Mailbox Database Name.edb

 

Once you know the location of EDB files, you can move, backup, migrate, recover or delete them as per your requirement using their respective procedures. Also, most of the Exchange recovery tools have inbuilt search facilities to locate the EDB files. Tools like Kernel for Exchange Server can be used even if you don’t know the location of the EDB file.

 

Summary: EDB file location is different in different versions of Exchange. To handle EDB corruption using inbuilt features, you may need to know the exact location of these files. But third-party EDB to PST tools like Kernel for Exchange Server have the facility to search and locate EDB files.
