Hi,

I would like to know how the 75 GB size limit in exchange 2003 on a Windows SBS is calculated.
Is it only the priv1.edb by exemple or the priv1.edb + priv1.stm ?

One of ours client is growing quite fast and I would like to make sure I understand that one right.

Thanks.

Karl

The size limit is based on the logical size of the STM+EDB files.  By logical size, I mean the total size of the files minus the available white-space.  To verify the total logical size you can check the 1221 event logs that occur for each database after the morning maintenance (probably appears as 6AM under the application log).
