Reinstall or move to a different machine


Reinstallation of the software is required where it is recommended by EdbMails Support, in a situation where you accidentally deleted the EdbMails installation files or Windows security updates or damages to your Windows registry, or your hard drive gets corrupted, etc.

How to reinstall

To reinstall the software, you can simply download and install the latest setup.

  • Uninstall the software from Windows Control Panel first
  • Run the setup and install the software a new

EdbMails Exchange migration is designed in such a way that uninstalling and reinstalling does not remove any configuration files or databases. So, all the settings will be retained.


If you wish to reinstall the software, including deleting all settings files completely, you need to remove the software and install it from scratch. Such an operation may result in unforeseen data loss and other problems, such as item duplication on the target server. We strongly recommend consulting with EdbMails Support before rushing into this decision.

Move installed program to a different machine

EdbMails Exchange Migration is designed to be moved to another computer once installed and configured and you have migrated the mailboxes.

Copy and paste the meta-data folder 'C:\Program Files (x86)\EdbMails\MDATA_MGR' from the migrated computer to the new computer. Set the 'Temp location for meta-data’ folder with the copied folder from your previous migration machine. Refer to the below screenshot.

  • Our company has acquired a small division of around hundred employees. After the acquisition, our immediate goal was to migrate Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016. We have listed few third-party tools to do this Exchange migration job. Our best bet was EdbMails, due to its unique features that supports automatic migration and a simple easy to use user interface :). EdbMails is the only application has passed our re-migration test wherein migration was successful without creating any duplicate items. Holding onto these results we have started our migration project and EdbMails proved to be a worth tool for Exchange migration projects. Of course you save a lot of money and time with EdbMails migration!
