Is there any Exchange API support exporting .edb file to .pst file. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm working on a feasibility study of Exchange single mailbox/item recovery for our product. I find that there are some third part software can extract items  from .edb file , and export specific items to .pst file. But there is not public  Exchange SDK about this functionality. So I want to know is there any special API  be provided for third part partener about this extract  .edb file?  if not, are there any another way to implement this functionality?

  • To recover your EDB file you must need a 3rd party Exchange Server Recovery Software. For your convenience you can read this tutorial about EDB Recovery. visit

  • There are no MS API's that allow for access to an Offline EDB, however Lucid8 does have a 64 bit API that we license to 3rd parties and of course the complete DigiScope product as well

    Search, Recover, Export Mailboxes, Folders, Email, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks, etc. from Offline Exchange Databases (EDBs), On-Premise Exchange Servers and Office 365. Migrate/Recover direct from any offline EDB into any On-Premises Exchange Server, even cross version i.e. 2003 → 2007 → 2010 →2013 → 2016 → Office 365 with Lucid8's DigiScope

  • As we know, 3rd party tools provide an easy and reliable way to convert EDB to PST files. Shoviv EDB to PST Converter tool is one of them. Through this tool, one can export their accessible and inaccessible EDB files into PST, EML, MSG, Office 365, and Live Exchange Server. Visit:
