Exchange 2003 size limit problem
Posted on 2013-09-18
Our mail server keeps going offline because it 'thinks" its at the 75G limit
xchange store 'First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (MAILSERVER)': The current physical size of this database (the .edb file and the .stm file) is 82 GB. This database has exceeded the size limit of 75 GB. However, the logical free space in this database has not yet been evaluated. Therefore, it is possible that this database contains enough free space to bring its logical size below the maximum size limit.
If the logical database size exceeds the maximum size limit, it will be dismounted on a regular basis.
The problem is I added up all the users email it comes out to about 45G. The physical file sizes are
I've run every sort of offline defrag with all the options I could find. Nothing seems to reduce these file sizes. If it was a question of limiting users email I'd just do it but we're not even close to the limit. Can anyone tell me how to purge whatever the server thinks is taking up this remaining space?
