Exchange Server refuses to write EDB and CHK files after corruption

Does your Microsoft Exchange Server database service deny write access to database files or checkpoint files? Can’t get information from the Microsoft Exchange database? This behavior renders your entire Exchange database unusable and leads to significant data loss situations. In order to get back your valuable data, you need to have an updated backup. However, if the backup is not updated or is not available at all, Exchange Server restore takes hours.

When Exchange Database Server services deny write access to the EDB file or Exchange Checkpoint File (CHK), you may find the following entries in the Microsoft Exchange Server Application Event Log:

Root of the problem:

Common reasons for the problem are:

1. The file was stolen by another process.

2. A controller or disk failure has occurred.

3. Permissions are removed from the directory where files are stored.

4. The Exchange Server database (EDB file) is damaged.


Try the methods below to fix this problem:

1. Restart the Exchange Server computer. It releases all system resources.

2. Troubleshoot controller or disk related issues by purchasing services from a hardware repair shop.

3. Restore permissions from backup. You can also try to recreate the rights if you have administrator rights.

4. Repair and restore damaged database with third-party Exchange Recovery software.

In particular, the applications are designed to perform an in-depth scan of the entire database and extract all inaccessible ones from the database. The Exchange Recovery tool are equipped with a rich and interactive graphical user interface for easy recovery.
