Hi,

Deleted some user accounts by mistake in Active directory. Can you help retrieving them. I have another question posted in this site about a desktop issue as well.

Thanks.

Ok. Before I look at your other post this is interesting and critical. Which I think is your priority as well.

I have given this solution in many forums and have tried this myself.
 
Download adrestore.exe
Adrestore.exe > File.txt
 
Just specific users
Adrestrore.exe -r (To get filter)
 
Let me know how this goes.

Thank you. I was able to retrieve the one user account that was real critical back with your instructions.

But what about the mailbox. We have exchange 2003?

Ok

In exchange system manager (EMC) > Go to mailbox of the user > It should have a red cross on it > If red cross is not there

Right click on mailbox store and run cleanup agent

Then right click on the user mailbox and click reconnect > Select the user you have restored

Hope this helps
