Exchange 2003 Information store size reaching the limit
Posted on 2014-07-21
We have a SBS 2003 sever that seems to keep getting to its limit of 75GB. Since the first time this happened a couple of weeks ago, I have been through the mailboxes and archived mailboxes for users not longer at the company and should have free up at least 10GB but the store has still dismounted a couple of times.
I have changed the maintenance interval so it runs outside working hours Mon - Fri. I can also see the following events in Event Viewer - 700, 702, 703, 1206, 1207, 1216 and 1221 but I have no idea if the maintenance or online defrag is actually running or working. I have also decreased the deleted items retention from 30 days to 15days. Is there a way to for the online defrag?
Is there also a way to find out what the actual size of the store is? as Even though I can see the logs mentioned above, the size of the .edb doesn't seem to decrease.
