Problem

The software is displaying the content of a corrupted EDB file, but I am not able to recover it and export it to any destination.

Cause

EDB file is severely corrupted. While adding EDB as source or after it, you let the software enable “Use Message Table to get ‘From’ field” option.

Solution

When “Use Message Table to get ‘From’ field” option is enabled, the software performs the raw recovery of “From” field from the Message Table.

During this raw recovery, the content in the highly corrupted areas of EDB files becomes visible in the software in read-only mode. Because of the less information, this content cannot be saved to another destination.

Please add EDB file without this option and then try to recover the content.

Please note if you have enabled “Use Message Table to get ‘From’ field” option while adding EDB file, then the scanning will be very slow.
