Is it possible to extract all Attachements from Exchange 2003 and save them somewhere else?
Posted on 2011-02-25
My exchange database is becoming huge, and i do not have unlimited space on my server. I have less than 10% disk space free. I can clear up some space easily, but for Exchange, I'd like to be able to reduce the database size considerably.
I thought of doing an offline defrag, (never done it) but im not confident on defrag technologies with corporate emails on an old SBS 2003 server. I know its possible to extract all the attachements from LOTUS Notes, but I dont know if its possible with Exchange 2003.
What would be the best thing for me to do? Is it really safe to make an offline defrag on my Exchange 2003 database? (about 30GB in sice) Priv1.edb is 23GB in size and priv1.stm is 8.8 GB in size.
