OST file size not reducing after deleting some mails from the exchange mailbox
Posted on 2011-04-30
We are using exchange 2007 server with symantec vault 9.0 as archival solution. Now we enabled archival for some mailbox and it is working fine. But in the outlook profile, the size of .OST file is not reducing. How It can be reduced to the size of the mailbox.
For eg: I had 3GB of data in my mailbox and the .OST file size also the same. Now after archiving, the mailbox size reduced to 512MB, but still the .OST file size is showing 3GB. this is for all mailbox is same. I deleted .OST and opened outlook again, at that time it created 512MB OST file. Any other way can we find to reduce .OST without deleting and recreating the OST file.
