Information Store Priv1.edb and priv1.stm File increased drammaticlly???
Posted on 2004-10-20
Recently my Exchange Server increased the information store excessivly which took my Exchange server down completely.
Running Exchange Server Standard, i know the limit is only 16GB.
I know that the edb extention relates to mapi connections and the stm extention relates to non-mapi connections.
If someoene can explain further how these work together, i would be able to obtain a better understanding to find out the cause of this problem?
Secondly can you explain why these files keep increasing, what may be the cause of this drammatic increase, could it be large emails, if so when an email are sent to a large number of people, is the attachement copied to all users or is it just a mirror image of the attachment. i am not sure on this comment.
After this is it best to upgrade to Enterprise edition or is it just best to defrag the database?
Can someone help me with this query.
