Kernel for Exchange Server is a secure and reliable option to retrieve corrupt Exchange database files and save them at a suitable destination. It does not require the transaction logs to recover the data, but it recovers whole data using the database file (EDB) only. There is a free version of the software which you can download from the website and later activate it. You can save only up to 25 items per folder. To save the entire data, you need to activate the trial version to a full version.

This article helped me in updating the trial version of the software as I was using the trial version and retrieving 25 items per folder.
Thanks to your technical support team that showed me the right way to update the trial version to a full version. I have bought the technical version of the software.
