Whitespace recovery in mailstores
Posted on 2011-09-21
I have 3 mail stores under ex 2010, one of these store has a edb file that is double the size of the mailboxes combined in that store. I know as quick fix would be to create a new store and move the mailboxes over and remove the old store.
Rather than create a new store then delete the old one, could I make a temp store, move the boxes over, move the logs and edb file out of the old store them move the mailboxes back to the original store, thus recreating the store.
Doing an offline defrag is not possible and due to certain policies it is preferred we kept the mail store naming the same.
