We are running Exchange 2000 in our office. And occasionally, the private store hits its size limit. I just do the reg edit to increase the from 16gb to 17gb, and defrag the store later that night.
Today, I got a call that email is down. I checked, and found out teh store was full. Not a problem, I do the temp increase and restart the service. I then restart my outlook to confirm I can get back into email but I can't.
I check the event log again, and now the store has reached 17GB. This occured in less then 5 minutes.
Now I am forced to run the offline defrag to reclaim the space. My main concern is where the 1GB of datacame from. I am worry if I restart the store I will lose all the space again in minutes before I can trouble shoot it.
Is there any ideas on what is going on? Or maybe a suggestion on what is happening? I am going to keep a copy of the defrag store, just incase.
