EDB is an acronym for Exchange Database. It is the main repository of the Exchange Server database, designed on single Client-Server architecture. Microsoft Exchange Server makes use of the Extensible Storage Engine in order to access its data.

The Exchange database file includes the entire data components like email messages, folders, attachments, contacts, calendars, etc… The Default location of EDB files is different for different versions of Exchange. The EDB File is also called a MAPI-based Database since it stores the messages from MAPI clients such as Outlook. Moreover, SMTP and HTTP messages are saved in this rich-text database.

When the Microsoft Exchange database gets dismounted, then that database is known as Offline EDB file. Also, if users have a separate Exchange database file in their local system then that file is also an Offline EDB file.

If Exchange .edb file can get Corrupt or Damaged due to various reasons such as: physical hard drive errors, Jet Errors, file size errors, Exchange Server failure due to improper shutdown, malicious virus, human errors, etc. and cannot mount again to Exchange Server then that database becomes Offline EDB.
