Database size conisderably larger than total mailbox size after offline defrag
We are running Exchange on a SBS 2003 server. We moved about 5 GB of a user's archives to an offline store so we could shrink the datastore size so it can be pushed off-site for backup purposes. The total file stores before running eseutil /d was a little over 10 GB. After running the defrag we only gained a couple hundred MB of space. When I look at the total of all the mailbox sizes in the System Manager it only adds up to about 4.5 GB but my priv1.edb and priv1.stm together equal over 10 GB still and event viewer is reporting only 113 MB of free space available. What could account for the additional 5.5 GB of size?
