Exchange Server 2007 and managing Public Folder size

Hi,

We have a client that relies heavily on Public Folders - I have tried to get them to look at other technologies, as well as archiving - no luck.  The Server is Windows 2008 and Exchange is 2007 with SP1.

Anyway to cut a long story short the public folder database size is currently 35GB, and that is after a cleanup and an offline defrag.  I am under the impression that you can only have one Public Folder database on a server, and am looking at other ways to reduce the size etc..

Not sure if I actually have any options here, but would appreciate some feedback.

Thanks,

Unfortunaltely you have already done everything (cleanup and defrag)
If the management agrees, you can identify PF statistics by lastaccessdate and remove the PF that were not accessed over a year. (Again getting approval to do this dependson the company)

You can use PFDAVadmin tool to get a better understanding of how these folders are used.

I am assuming the lack of other responses means that there isn't much else that can be done.  Thanks rr1968.
