I am running Exchange 2003 Sp2 Standard Edition and I am having an issue with the EDB file for the mailboxes growing at a very rapid rate.
I recently ran a offline defrag and the database reduced from 80GB down to 30GB. Within 7 days it was back up to 50GB and growing. This is the second time I have done this in 2 months. The logical free space shows about 20-30GB.
I am a bit concerned that the increase in size will impact on performance and could cause an issue if I forget to defrag and the disk space is filled.
Is this normal behaviour or is this a sign of a more serious problem?
