Converting EDB file to PST

Hello we have issue with exchange server and were only able to retrieve the EDB file from a backup. Is it possible to convert this to PST files?
Exchange version is 2013.
Is there any free tools available? The server is no longer available.

3rd party - but free is typically not possible unless its a small test sample

You can download and see how much it lets you convert...

is there anyway to verify integrity of an EDB file? IS there any health checks I can do beforehand?

We cannot test and introduce third-party software, here are some supported suggestion which may be useful to you:

You could try recover your Exchange from ADSI record: Recover Exchange servers

You can also try to use the database portability to mount your Database on a new Exchange server: Move a mailbox database using database portability in Exchange Server
