    Hi guys,

    I run a SBS 2003 at home. Yesterday my SOFTWARE registry hive got corrupted beyond repair. So I re-installed my server, which wasn’t a big deal, because I have only two users on that SBS. We’ve backed up our e-mail, but the second user forgot to check ‘include subfolders’ while exporting to pst… So we’re stuck with an ost file, and an empty pst…

    I do still have the MDBDATA folder and the LOGS folder from the previous install… Would it be possible to restore the messages from that folder (or from the ost file?) to a pst file or to an exchnage mailbox?

    Keep in mind DC has been re-installed and all profiles are new and that my knowledge of EXS is very limited… am I in a world of pain now? Or is this doable?

    Thnx in advance,
