Overcoming the 74GB database size limit
Posted on 2008-11-03
We currently use Small Busines Server 2003 which has the inherent database size limit. Although we are a small firm, we are coming up on a direct collision course with this size limitation. My question, is there a way to upgrade just the Exchage portion of SBS 2003 to the full blown Exchange that doesn't have this limitation?
Please no lectures on how users shoul manage their mailboxes as this is beyond my control. We have looked at moving folders to PST files, but this creates more problems than it solves. Have also looked at programs like the Sunbelt Exchange Archiver (which may be a valid option), but am concerned about disaster recovery.
I am also aware of 2007 versions, but have no budget for this type of upgrade for another year.
