Many organizations do not backup their Exchange data owing to the costs involved. An Exchange recovery mechanism is essential for them after incidents like Exchange corruption, crashes, or disasters. Inbuilt Exchange features are the least expensive option at this point. But only technically brilliant administrators can recover data using them. Also, it may take many weeks for data recovery. And there is no guarantee that entire data will be recovered.
To recover all emails, including the user mailbox data related to it, one needs to switch from manual repair to using third party software to convert exchange mailbox to pst files. With its graphical user interface and interactive screens, it becomes so easy to convert Exchange files, and recover Exchange data.
Even a novice user can convert Exchange to PST in a couple of minutes. All you need to do is to run the software and locate the corrupt EDB files, choose the desired Exchange Server version from “Ask for EDB Version” option and commence the recovery procedure. The EDB Recovery tool repairs and enlists the data for you to preview. Once previewed, you can choose the files and save it to the desired location. The converted files can be saved in EDB or PST file format. They can be migrated to a Live Exchange Server and EDB to Office 365 as well. Apart from this, you can save the recovered items in various formats like RTF, MSG (Unicode/ANSI), Text, EML, and HTML.
With the help of two deep scanning modes, the user can perform the recovery in all corruption situations:
Standard Scan: This is the quickest database recovery mode of the software and helps the user in fixing small EDB corruption issues. It saves recovered mailbox information in PST files. The software allows migration to a Live Exchange Server and Office 365 also.
Advanced Scan: It is a little bit slower than the Standard Scan. But this mode is capable of repairing severely corrupt EDB files. All recovered Exchange mailboxes are saved in PST format after recovery. Migration to a Live Exchange Server and Office 365 is also possible.
The Standard Scan mode is used initially and if you are not satisfied with the desired results, you can switch to the Advanced mode. Though a little bit slow, this mode scans the corrupt EDB files to recover the user mailboxes even in worst scenarios of corruption.
The trial version of the EDB Recovery Tool helps you to recover corrupt EDB files and preview them. User is allowed to save first 25 items per folder. In order to save all the recovered data, you need to purchase the full version of the software. The free trial version is mainly meant for evaluation purposes.
