    Take any backup (old backup) that is the best option.
    Since you have all local mail you can recover them.
    If you have no backup at all, you have a problem, start from scratch

      Thanks for reply, this wekend was horrible for me , as i see the disaster of exchange server , i like this site and i post my first issue here, but i was very late to post here becuase time was very short and i try to recover before monday morning so when employes comes they must found exchange server up.
      so in hurry what i did , i install new hardisk and reinstall the chnage server and service pack 2 as was in old server it goes with only one error when i install exchange server before updating service pack it gives me error of manamgent component updating , but when i update with service pack it works fine, after that when i start system manger and open first storage servre it give me a prompt that if you mount server it will make new databse from scratch or you can restore databse i ignore in hurry and make new databse from scrtch, but after that i found that i had a backup 6 mont old. but in vain, now in morning i will import alll users PST again, i have 100 mailbox so it is a lengthy task. i don;t know id dit right or wrong but , my server is up, any suggestion will be highly welcomed.
