Database Space Not Recovered After Offline Maintenance
Posted on 2006-10-27
We are running a Exchange 2000 server on a Windows 2000 server. We have a mixed environment of Exchange with Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003. Our database is nearing the 16GB limit so I ran an offline defrag to recover 3GB of space that was created by archiving their email. Unfortunately, after maintenance was run, only 200MB was recovered. I ran Eseutil with the /d and /p switches. Does anyone know the reason for this? I need to recover this space to make sure our store doesn't dismount! Thank you for your help!
