Exchange server eating space and processing
Posted on 2009-04-22
Hi there, I was greated yesterday morning uopn my arrival at work with the Exchange server falling over due to lack of disk space.
Now I have to admit our Exchange server is fairly old but up unitl now it has proved to do its job well enough.
Having made some "emergency" space I was able to dig around a little more. I noticied that the HDD Space had decreased rapidly over the course of a few days (another 4GB last night).
In addition to the Hard DIsk space dissapearing the memory usage is running in the high 90% - 100%. The two processes that seem to be causing this are:
Both of which are conected with McAfee I believe, but why are they running so highly. I have attempted a reinstallation but no change.
My thought turned to the possibility of a virus or something malicious like that, but having run a full scan using the latest SuperDAT and alos running a scan for Spyware, nothing was found of any serious issue.
Does anyone have any advice to solve the performance and Hard Disk issues?
