ExFolders for Exchange 2010 Sp1

ExFolders for Exchange 2010 Sp1

  • Comments 27

A few of you emailed me when you noticed an error running ExFolders on Exchange 2010 SP1, which was recently released. Attempting to navigate into a mailbox would throw an error stating, “Error: Method not found.” This was due to some changes in the DLLs that ExFolders relies on.

We’ve just posted a new version of ExFolders that works properly with Sp1. You can find it here.

The RTM version is still available for download as well. Be aware that the RTM version won’t work on Sp1, and the Sp1 version won’t work on RTM, as far as navigating into mailboxes.

  • Bill,

    I am using Exchange 2010 SP1 and the SP1 version of exFolders and I am still getting the "method not found error"... any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Receiving the below when clicking on user and attempting expand his/her properties.

    EX2010 with SP1

    Method not found: 'Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Storage.ExchangePrincipal Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Storage.ExchangePrincipal.FromLegacyDN(System.String, Boolean)'.

  • Please make sure you're using the correct version. That error should only occur if you're running the Sp1 build on an RTM server, or the RTM build on an Sp1 server.

  • Does this tool work with Exchange 2010 SP2?  I have read the readme, ran the reg file but app just crashes when I try to run.

  • Trying to run ExFolders.exe from C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Bin\

  • Sorry It is SP1, was looking at the wrong label.  Can't get it to run though

  • Guys i cant find the ExFolders utility. Any ideas of the direct link??

  • Panos, this is a little late, but the link is up in the post where it says "you can find it here." Click on "here". :)

  • Did anybody ever get this to work? I am still getting the same Error: Method not found. I am running Exchnage Server 2010 version 14.01.0289.001 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard...I downloaded and extracted the version of EXFolders says ver. 2.8....what am I doing wrong?

  • Reggie, on the Details tab of the properties page of ExFolders.exe, what is the build number?

  • Hi,

    i got the same problem on exchange 2010 Sp1.

    Error:Method not found.

    Exchange Version 14.00.0722.000

  • Switchgott, if your Exchange version is showing as 14.00, you are not on Sp1. If you were, it would be 14.01.

  • Not working. I get a message saying application has stopped working. Nothing. I need a folder recovered it is there but no-one has permission not even the person who deleted it.

  • David, what are the exact steps that lead to the error? Are you saying it happens when you right-click and choose Recover Folder? If so, please download the Procdump tool. Launch ExFolders and then run procdump as follows:

    procdump -e -ma exfolders.exe

    At that point, reproduce the error, and procdump should generate a dump file. Use the "Email Blog Author" link at the top right of this page to let me know you have the dump file.

  • Correct. Had the same symptoms and this new version solved my problems.

    Thank you
