My company is running Exchange 2000 SP3 on Windows 2000 SP4. I had a hard drive issue on the server. I set up a new server and restored my information store from backup and ran the eseutil /cc. That worked fine and my store is in a "clean shutdown" state. The problem is that my back up was a little old. I have the transaction log files from the time after the last successful back until the hard drive failed. Is there anyway that I get those log files to load? The restore.env only knows about the 1 or 2 log files that were part of the backup. I have read many many articles on restoring and recovering with eseutil and trying to get the database in a clean shutdown state so the information store will mount but nothing on what to do with my extra log files that have the data I am missing. Is there anyway I can add that missing data? Any held would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

    No, the old server still works. I have both a backup of an old database and the current database although the current file is corrupt (even though it is still functional).
