Microsoft Exchange 2007
I luckily have a backup of our Exchange Public Folder. Restored it, and get the error Exchange is unable to mount the database that you specified. specified database: public folder database: Error code: Mapiexceptioncallfailed: unable to mount database (hr-0x80004005, ec=-544) I don't have any data in the public folder, so I could care less about it, but need the public folder for Blackberry Calendar synching. I cannot delete the public database or create another without it telling me I cannot delete because it's the only one, and then when I try to create a new one, it tells me that I already have one. Thanks for any help!

Hi,
check the database with eseutil /mh >path to database.edb>
I sugess the db is in dirty shutdown
try to repair the db with eseutil /p <path to database.edb>
if the db is empty this should take not more than minutes.
When the db is repaired remove all the log files in the matching folder of the db
try to mount the db. it should work.

    Hi,

    Try running a ESEUTIL /P then /D and ISINTEG on the restored mail database restored to the recovery storage group. In this case, eseutil /p or hard repair method may help you to bring the database into consistent state. But due to its limited functionalities and destruction property, users sometimes faces some critical data loss problems. Unfortunately , it does not predict how much data is lost. So to avoid such data loss situations and to get data back a third party application may you.

    Hope this helps.
