This issue occurs because the EdgeTransport.exe process tries to find the current row on the database without checking the existence of the rows when the redundant copy is deleted. If the deletion is fired before committing the current row, a Microsoft.Exchange.Transport.Storage.DataSeekException exception is thrown.


To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:

2917508 Description of Update Rollup 5 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
