Exchange 2003 Enterprise running Netbackup 6.5.  I created a recovery storage group and recovered a month old database to it from tape (ultimate goal was to recover somebody's mailbox).  After the restore completed successfully, I was unable to get the recovery store to mount.    Long story short, finally decided I just wanted to delete the recovery storage group.  WELL, exchange decided it wasn't going to let me, trying to delete the recovery store yielded this "The Microsoft Exchange Information Store service could not find the specified object"  ID no: c1041722"  after googling and trying numerous solutions (and wasting way too much time) I decided to delete the database files manually since I needed the hard drive space.  Well now when I try to delete the recovery storage group I get this "This storage group contains one or more stores.  Only empty storage groups can be deleted."  And I still can't remove the store even though I already deleted the database files.  What can I do to manually remove this?  There has to be a way, I just can't to find any solutions.

hi mate,

If you want to remove it manually, remove that information through ADSIEDIT.msc...
Configuration partition => Services => Microsoft Exchange => Org Name => Administrative Group => First Administrative Group => servers => your targeted server, there you will find RSG information which can be deleted.

Note : Take the system state backup of your domain controller
