deleting portion of mailbox resulting from interrupted mailbox move

I was moving a mailbox from one exchange server to another and for some reason (still don't know why)  the move was interrupted. The result is that I still have a fullyl functioning mailbox (15gb)on the source server but on the destination server there is a 6gb segment (with the red 'x') of the same mailbox. If I try to purge this segment, I receive the error from ESM : id no. c1034ad6 stating that the mailbox cannot be purged because it is "already connected to an existing user".

I still need to move the 15gb mailbox to the destination server. How do I get rid of the 6gb segment on the destination server or is it even necessary?

thanks

YOu need to remove exchange attributes from the user account before you can do that. After that you delete the 6 GB file, if it still wont work run the cleanup agent. Then move the real 15 GB mailbox again. Is that really 15 GB for one single mailbox? Seems a bit big...

Oh and after that you of course you reconnect the mailbox to the user....
