We are running Exchange 2007 SP1. On our Public Folder database, I notice there is a setting for "Keep Deleted Items for xx days".
Currently, it is at the default of 7.
I am thinking of increasing it to 20. However - am curious to know what would happen if I had it at 20 and then changed it back to 7 again (e.g. if I noticed that the space was decreasing).
Will this affect the live public folders at all or just the area of the mailbox store where the deleted items are kept? And - out of interest - where exactly are the deleted items kept for x days?
