Exchange 2010 Empty Dumpster

We have users that cannot empty the deleted folder or junk folder emails.  We think this has to do with the dumpster being full.  How do we go about trouble shooting the problem and clean the dumpster?

Thanks

Get-MailboxStatistics "UserName" |FL

What is the size of the Dumpster ?
What if the user tries to delete items from Dumpster using OWA\Webmail ?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

No, We can login to OWA and read mail.  The error is after a user logs in and clicks on either the deleted  or junk mail folder is the user receives the error.  The other folders (indox, sent mail, ect...) seem to ok.  I should also mention that so far there are only 2 users that have this issue and both users have large amounts of emails in their junk mail and deleted mail folders.

On another note:
We are running Exchange 2010 Version: 14.00.0722.000 on a Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise server.  Should we upgrade to the newest service pack and if so do we need to upgrade to SP2 and then SP3 or go directly to SP3?

Thanks

If you have Outlook, open it try the recover deleted items option. When that opens go in there and delete/purge everything.

Then you should be able to empty deleted items.

Sorry I haven't responded.  I have been out of the office.  I have updated the Exchange Server 2010 to SP3 and I still get an error trying to delete junk mail or deleted mail.

Thanks
