Actual Size of the Priv1.edb & priv1.stm files

We have to check to total databse size of exchange for a customer.

The problem is that the priv1.edb file gives a size of 30 Gb, But when we count each mailbox seperate then is the size smaller.

According to the files the total siz of priv1.stm and priv1.edb is: 45,1 Gb

But in the eventlog we get the next warning;
xchange store 'First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (HRLIS02)': The logical size of this database (the logical size equals the physical size of the .edb file and the .stm file minus the logical free space in each) is 43 GB. This database size is approaching the size limit of 45 GB.

If the logical database size exceeds the maximum size limit, it will be dismounted on a regular basis.

For more information, click http://www.microsoft.com/contentredirect.asp

Is it possible to change this to 44 Gb?
We want to know when the total size is 44 Gb.

I hope you can help me.

That's because the database is fragmented. Normaly the database is doing an online defragmentation during the night. But if you want to recup the lost space you need to do an offline defragmentation.

You should use the command line tool ESEUTIL

take a look at the following article

Hi,

Your best bet is to install service pack 2 for Exchange. This will allow you to increase the max mailbox store limit to 75GB. The next thing I would suggest is to check your event logs for event 1221. This will show you the amount of space that could be reclaimed via an offline defrag. Completing a defrag is not something that you should consider doing as part of normal maintenance and it would only be something I would suggest if you have a large amount of space being reported in event 1221.
