There are some situations, such as virus infection, improper system shutdown, application malfunction, and missing database objects, where the Exchange Server Database (EDB file) may get damaged and all of the stored data become inaccessible. To handle such situations, Exchange Server includes a repair utility called Eseutil. It can detect errors, repair them and defragment the hard drive. But this utility can not handle the situation in case of severe damage and you encounter data loss situations. At this point, you are required to go for Exchange Server Recovery solutions. Sometimes when you attempt to repair a damaged Exchange Server database using Eseutil tool, the process might fail and you may find the following entries in the Application Event Log of Exchange Server:
