Hi all,
I have a very serious problem in exchange server 2003 enterprise edition. I have exchange server installed in the D: Drive. the total no. of users are only 25 and no one has crossed more than 500MB. i have noticed that total D: drive (full exchange log files, database) altogether ha not exceeded 6GB. My total hard disk space is 50GB, in this exchange should have occupied only 8-10GB maximum. but presently the remaining disk space is 13.9GB? i don't know where the disk spaces are going on? can some one clarify and assist me. as this is very urgent and serious issue. 2 days before the remaining space was 15.5 gb and as on today it is 13.9GB, hope if i leave it for another 10-15 days, my hard disk will be empty. more specificially, exchange db is 5.2GB and log files are 4MB and no shadow copies. symantec antivirus server is running in this exch server. Ironport mail security appliance takes care for mail security (spam, virus...). can some one clarify me, where the space will be going out and how to solve this? any one ever come across
