Exchange 2000 - can I get rid of priv1.edb?
Posted on 2007-04-10
A client has Exchange 2000 running on a Windows 2000 Server. Recently his private store (priv1.edb) grew to over 15 gig and durring a bad reboot got damaged. We were able to use eseutil and some finger crossing to repair the store and get back online. After reading some other reccomendations we decided to create a couple new stores and migrate the mailboxes into them to spread out the load. My question is, can I totally get rid of priv1.edb? It is still sitting at around 13 gig but has no user mailboxes in it. If I need to keep it around, what is the best way to drop it down to a reasonable size?
