Default Exchange 2010 Recovery without EDB File / only transaction logs


I have following issue. In an infrastructure we had an Exchange 2010 database crash. the last full backup is 4 days old. because there was no way to repair the database i restored the 4 day old backup. so far so good...but is there a way that i can restore the missing 4 days of mailbox items? i have all the log files but no valid edb file. is there a way to set up a new database without the edb file? i don't want to touch the current database..maybe it is possible with the use of the recovery database?

thanks for any hints

1) Create a Recovery Database (RDB) in Exchange 2010 using the Exchange Management Shell. You cannot create a recovery database using the Exchange Management Console. Use the following command in shell to create the RDB:

New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery -Name RDB -Server “servername” -EdbFilePath "path" -LogFolderPath "path”

For Eg.: new-mailboxdatabase -Recovery -Name BD100 -Server MBX1 -EdbFilePath "D:\BD100\Database\BD100.edb" -LogFolderPath "D:\BD100\Logs"

Do not mount the recovery database before the restore. If you do mount the recovery database before the restore, you must dismount it. Select the This database can be overwritten by a restore option on the database property page in Exchange Management Console utility.

2) Select the Database to be restored from the Backup Exec Restore job properties

3) Go to Microsoft Exchange Redirection and select Redirect Exchange Sets. Enter the following options.
