Have you investigated a procedure called 'forklifting' the Exchange databases?

When I worked for the dark-side administrating NT and Exchange 5.5 boxes, we had ALOT of problems. Had to to alot of forklifting, as well as running some utilities that repair corruption in the databases, etc. I can't remember what the utilities are called but they took A LONG time to run.

Also, there is NO GUARANTEE that it will work. MS won't offer you one, you're doing this at your own risk. At least 1/3 of the time when we attempted the procedure, it failed. Of course, we were way past recommended sizes for the info stores, but that wasn't by my choice...
