We have about 12 users, various mailbox sizes. if i look in system manager and addup the mailboxes size, it comes to just over 8gb. however when i look where exchange database files are stored, (F:\Exchsrvr\mdbdata) the priv1.edb is 15gb and priv1.stm is 6gb.
The space is alittle short at the moment which is how i spotted this. Why are the database files so big if the mailboxes dont addup to database file size?? How can we reduce the db files??
