We just switched our mail server from exchange 5.5 (due to 16GB Limit) to exchange 2003 enterprise two days ago. The new exchange 2003 has sp2 installed. However, since we switch, our Priv.edb database has increased to 24GB (1st day) and then 48GB (Today) and it is still increasing. I verified that our total size for all the mailboxs in priv.edb should be only around 17GB. Where did all these extra storage came from? Can someone please help me up? Please let me know what would cause this and how can I resolve it?
Note: we have been using exchange 5.5 for past 5 years and the storage grew to 16GB only. It is impossible for us to use up that many storage in two days!
Thank you so much!
