Recover Public Folders from Corrupt EDB Files

Exchange EDB files are precious as they contain all the useful information in their mailboxes and public folders. An Exchange Public Folder is an integrated service for Exchange users to share content and information on a common folder. And the folder permissions to users lie under the control of the administrator. A Public Folder is supported to Outlook on the Web for Exchange 2016 and later versions, Outlook versions with configured Exchange Server and Outlook for Mac 2016. Its architecture is based on mailbox infrastructure which includes folder hierarchy and data stored on a separate Exchange Server EDB file (pub1.edb).
