How to open Exchange 2016 EDB files on Windows machines?

The data in Exchange Server is stored in EDB files (Exchange Database File), and this file can only be accessed through Exchange Server. But if you have Kernel EDB Viewer, you can view EDB file content without Exchange Server. This tool can be installed on any Windows machine to access EDB files there.

Sometimes the EDB file gets corrupt due to software failure, power failure, system crash, or virus attack. And it becomes difficult to open and read the data of a corrupt EDB file. Also, there are no manual methods available to open a corrupt Edb file. But, with the help of Kernel EDB Viewer, users can open and read emails from a corrupt/damaged EDB file without any hassle.

Let’s have a closer look at this tool.

  • In the next step, select the scanning mode, i.e., “Standard Scan” or “Advanced Scan,” and click “Finish.”
  • Note 1: The Standard Scan mode is the mode recommended by us, as it gives fast and best results for EDB files. However, if you’re unable to open EDB file with the Standard scan, then use Advanced Scan mode.
