Now if the mailbox store suffers any sort of corruption, then there is a utility, called ExMerge, which is viable for Exchange recovery. This can’t actually repair the corrupted ones but this can act as the valuable tool for mailboxes, which are out of corruption. If the Information Store Service can be started, this utility can be applied to copy and transfer all the uncorrupted data to PST files.
Even if there is partial corruption in the mailboxes, the uncorrupted messages can be retrieved. This utility bypasses the corrupted information and all the messages which show some kind of distortion.
This utility is able to extract the uncorrupted information in the mailbox folder. Particularly, this can be said that it facilitate e-mail migration. Some of the users also claim that this utility can be use to make the backup of mailboxes easy and effective.
Regardless of its plus points, the major limitation is that the corrupted mailbox will remain in the same state and the utility does help EDB recovery for them. Some of the earlier versions of ExMerge does not support recovery for various items like calendar, contacts, notes, tasks and so on.
