what is Zero out deleted database pages?

1 Solution
When an item is deleted (such as a mailbox, folder, message) from the
Exchange database, the database pages are simply marked as unused. Page
zeroing is a more secure way of deleting - it overwrites the database pages
occupied by deleted items using specified character. Page zeroing occurs
during Exchange backups (if configured), and as one can image - it takes
more resources.
