Figure 1 windowThe database of Microsoft Exchange 2000/2003 is called WebStorageSystem. This database can be accessed via WebDAV, a HTTP related protocol. Mistaya allows you to explore this database with an explorer-like interface. All you need is a connection via port 80 to the exchange server.

  • View and manage Attachments Screenshot
  • View deleted but not yet permantely removed files and directories
  • Recover deleted elements and folder or destroy them permanently
