When we try do do a restore of the public folder DB we get a CRC integrity error... does this mean the backup is useless?
Crc errors can be tricky to diagnose as to what the cause is.
Here is a listing of the most common reasons:
1. Bad backup (run a manual verify on the backup)
2. Bad Memory (run memtest, www.memtest.org )
3. Bad Sector on hard drive (run chkdsk /r )
4. Bad network connection (do restore locally)
Can i have you post the restore log here? it may show us a different reason.
I have done a verify on the backup and it passed ok.
I can't shut the machine down to do a memtest or chkdsk at the moment as there is live data on it. ( can you confirm you meant the UB server and not the Exchange server?)
Below is the log for the restore:

Looking at the log file, i would have to say the issue is with the destination point (the exchange server). The next step would be to run check disk / memtest on the exchange server.
Checked the disks and they are fine, however memtest has failed - Got some new RAM on order and will update you once I receive and install it.
I have received and installed the new ram and it looks like it's faulty too or the mobo is dying.
However I was having a look through the event log on the Exchange server and found these to logs after attempting a restore
Event Type: Error
Event Source: M***changeIS
Event Category: Exchange Backup Restore

The exchange server had exchange removed and reinstalled for this restore - am I missing step out? do I need to recreate the DB on the exchange server in a particular place with a particular name?
The hardware looks OK now, the problem seems to be with the restore as per the event logs I posted.
Any ideas what this could be? Is it possible just to restore the actual database files rather than putting it back onto the server direct?
The errors that you are receving can be too complex to resolve over the fourm. Can i have you call our support team at 425-644-6000 so that we may resolve this issue for you?
I won't have time to call in today, however here is some more info to ponder over.
I had a look at the kb, and tried workaround 3 to no avail, so after this I tried to re-create the public store (Public Folder Store (SCCRCSRV2)) to see if this helped however it says that this object already exists. Any ideas on where this may exist so I can delete it?
Do you have a UK based helpdesk that I can call?
