Exchange database still too big after defrag
Posted on 2009-05-04
We have moved a bunch of users over to Exchange 2007 and then did an offline defrag, but the database didn't shrink enough, it only shrank about 5 Gb. Added the space up in the exchange system manager, it is about half the size of the database.
We have exchange standard and the size of the edb and the stm database combine to be over 75 Gb so keep getting the error about it being to big. When I added the mailbox sizes in ESM it was about 40 Gb.
Is there any other way to shrink the database?
