We shall shortly be moving mailboxes across from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2007.
Currenlt calcualten storage requirements on LUNS for new 2007 server.

Structure of databases on E2k is .edb & .stm.
Structure on E2k7 is only edb.
When all mailboxes are moved, does this amount to total size of edb & stm, or is the size deduced in any way?

the space you have now, is the space you will need to allow for.

the only change you will have is the space saved in an offline degrag - which will be simulated when moving the mailboxes.
