How much Memory does the machine have, how many mailboxes are being used and can you get the size of the store? Memory leaks occur much less than RPC problems, so let's see if we can knock out the memory issue first.

The store is much larger than that.

Open Exchange System Administrator
Open the Site - ADministrative Groups - YourGroup - Servers - YourServer - YouStorage Group - YourStore

Right click on the Store and select the Database Tab. This will show you where the file is. Go see how big it is.

The disk space is a big issue. Especially if the server is using the C: for its swap file.

You may be much better off, trying to free up space on the C drive.. If the store is located on C, I would add new drives and make another volume (E:? or seomthing), and then move the store over to it.

Typically the store will have problems when their are too many RPC requests and backups can cause this. On the server open up Administrative Tools ---> Performance Monitor, select counters for ExchangeIS and select the RPC Requests Counter. Let it run for a while and determine what the average number of RPC requests are.
