    We have a new Exchange 2010 server that is being used to temporarily hold mailboxes. After a reboot this morning the .edb file went from 276gb to 0kb. Of course we haven't even taken a full backup of the server yet. So now I have 276gb worth of log files but a 0kb EDB. I have tried using eseutil without any luck. Anyone have any suggestions?
    C:\Users\npadmin> eseutil /mh "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Ma
    ilbox\Mailbox Database 1845579316\Mailbox Database 1845579316.edb"

    This may have happenned due to a corrupted database header. Explicitly setting a
    page size might bypass this failure.

    You would be recovering the data & log files to a recovery database in hopes of recoving the datastore and mail. Use EDB Viewer Tool from: http://www.edb.viewertool.com/

    Its not really that simple but I would make sure you have a backup (even though you only have logs and a corrupt edb I would make a copy anyways.
