Hi,

I have to configure GFI mailarchiver for an SBS 2011 Std edition server. Total of 11 users.

The issue is that I need to import around 150GB of PST files into the archive and I don't know what database I should use. As the server is SBS std there is no full blown SQL option.

Can any one give me any ideas?

Thanks

SQL Server Express which is included is limited to 10GB
So you're only option is Full SQL
The best way to do this is with the SBS 2011 Premium Add On
This gives you another Windows Server license and SQL Server 2008 Std
You really should put this on a separate box
That way if something happens to the SBS box...you still have your archive

is there any other way, as SQL is too expensive?

Buying the premium add on for SBS will get you SQL Server but at a cheaper price than buying SQL Server Standard   Beyond that there are no free options
