MS exchange server is a networking server for live outlook email program. It also provides a platform for web browsers like internet explorer, firefox, safari and google chrome. Microsoft exchange stores emails, contacts, calendars and attachments of the users in exchange database or EDB files. The exchange database or EDB files can become damaged or corrupt if there is virus intrusion in the exchange server through internet or POP3 emails. EDB files may also get damaged due to accidental deletion of user outlook account from exchange domain server or hard disk corruption.
The corrupt EDB files make outlook mailbox of the user inaccessible. User may encounter several error messages while trying to open their personal email accounts from corrupt EDB files:
Database page read failed verification because of a -1018 error
Data inconsistency detected in table table_num of database database_path
The information stored terminated abnormally
Inconsistent database is in inconsistent state- Jet engine error
It is always better to make backups of exchange database files in a safe storage location. These backups can be utilized to restore database information in case corruption in EDB files.
