Exchange Server architecture relies on standard database technology. Information Store and JET Database Engine are the main components of Exchange. When some undesirable events happen in the Exchange environment of Exchange 2003, it mostly affects the information store that is made up of two separate databases:
- Private information store database
- Public information store database
The information store comprises of the database files: Priv1.edb, Priv1.stm, Pub1.edb and Pub1.stm. Among these, Priv1.edb manages user mailbox data and Pub1.edb manages public folder data. When the corruption hits the database, these .edb files turn corrupt.
