What Stellar Converter for EDB can be used for

Recommended by MVPs and IT administrators, the software helps Exchange administrators to extract mailboxes from offline or online Exchange Database (EDB) archive, without dismounting the Exchange server database.

Advantages and disadvantages of using Stellar Converter for EDB

If you need to convert EDB files to be able to consult them in other formats, it is undoubtedly the right tool. It’s fast, very easy to use, and the fact that it allows you to view the content before transforming it is quite an advantage in programs of this type.

As a disadvantage I could only mention the fact that it requires a paid license to run, but there is still a trial version that can be downloaded and used, although in that case it only allows you to search for content and preview it, not save the results in the PC.
