Exchange priv1.edb is a monster!
Posted on 2005-04-19
I have an Exchange 2003 server (SBS 2003) with essentially one user (yes, only one). Today she told me that she was no longer receiving e-mail. I checked the size of the Exchange Databases and to my horror discovered the following:
priv1.edb = 16,570,376 KB!
priv1.stm = 206,856 KB
pub1.edb = 286,216 KB
pub1.stm = 22,536 KB
I checked her .ost file and it was 140,898 KB and I archived her Outlook and got it down to 33,745 KB. But that is not the answer. Why in the name of Godzilla is the priv1.edb so huge and how can I get it back down to normal so I can use Exchange again? WHat should I be looking for?
