exchange store keeps unmounting

Hi all, Need help my exchange store keeps unmounting, I have increased the 18g size to 75g   in the registery and made sure I had service pack 2 installed.  I also had users create personal folders on their local drives and move some of their big stuff to it. the excat error is as follows: " exchange store 'first storage group\mailbox store(server name) the logical size of this database (the logical size equals the phisical size of the .edb file and the .stm file minus the logical free space in each) is 18 gb. this database has exceeded the size limit of 18gb. this database will be dismounted immediately." Any help would be appericated.

Sounds like the exchange store hasn't recognised the change you made;
see this article

Hi,
Please redo the changes as per link above and try again. After changes please make sure you reboot the server.
Thanks

Is there a way I can check to see if setting took after a reboot, other than just waiting to see if the store unmounts again?

gupnitCommented:
Quarantine....this error is most probably your AV error, like Robin said clear the Folder...
But this will not affect the users, do not worry !
