EDB is the file format of the Exchange Server Database and if you are looking for the location of the EDB file, then there must be an issue in your Exchange Server mailbox that you want to resolve. The database contains various mailboxes of different users who have an account in Exchange. Each mailbox has important emails, sent emails, attachments, contacts, notes, calendar details, etc. If you are unable to access your emails or the Outlook is showing an error that the manual methods cannot remove, then you need to access the location of the EDB files to run the troubleshooting methods.

Here is the list of the location of the EDB files in the different versions of Exchange Server

Exchange Server 2019 and 2016

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Mailbox\Database.edb >

Exchange Server 2013

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Mailbox\Database.edb >

Exchange Server 2010

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox Database\Database.edb >

Exchange Server 2007

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\First Storage Group\Database.edb >

Exchange Server 2003

C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA\Priv1.edb >

Why do you need to know the location of the Exchange EDB file?

There are many reasons that compel you to go and check the location of EDB file –

  • When Outlook has lost the connection with Exchange Server
  • When Outlook shows an error related to your mailbox account
  • When you are unable to access your emails, their attachments, and contacts
  • When there is a malware or spyware attack directed to the Exchange Server
  • When the EDB file is dismounted from the Exchange Server abruptly
  • When Outlook is shutting down abruptly
  • When you want to take a manual backup of your mailbox
  • When you plan to migrate your data to another destination
  • When the EDB file is corrupt beyond manual repair
  • When there is any privacy issue and your data may get leaked

In any of the above scenarios, you will not be able to work on Exchange Server and the email communication will stop. Your account will not send/receive the emails and you will be on the verge of losing all the information.

To take control of the data back to you, you need to repair the EDB file, retrieve the data, and save it into a safe file.

If your EDB file is healthy and there is a problem with the Exchange Server, then in this case, you need to Convert EDB to PST first and then open it in Outlook. If the case is different and your EDB file is corrupt, then the only solution to view & repair corrupt EDB file is with the help of a third-party tool.
