"By default, registry entries mentioned in this article are not present; when you create the entry, you override the default value set in code."

Go here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\<SERVER NAME>\Private-013e2e46-2cd7-4a8e-bfec-0e4652b94b00

Add this key: REG_DWORD   Database Size Limit in GB
and set it to whatever you want (up to a max of 75)

I'm assuming you are concerned with the reaching the Exchange limit of the information store:

But if you're concerned about the size of the C: drive, because, maybe you haven't moved the store off the C: drive, then please see:

That is the only key. Now restart the information store. The will be an event in the application log that indicates the new size limit on the database.
