GFI check for exchange 2013 store size

I have a client with Exchange 2013 installed.  I use GFI Max to monitor their server and one of the checks that GFI runs is an Exchange store size check.  GFI sets the default to 12 GB and recently this check started to fail because the store size has grown over 12 GB.

I've found in the past that with some of the other checks GFI has set the bar too low and I'm wondering if this is another instance, from my reading online that seems to be the case.  Unfortunately, I don't have a ton of experience with Exchange so I'm looking for a little help here.

With Exchange 2013 Is there some size limit that the store should not exceed, or is there some set of rules used to calculate such a limit for a particular installation?

Thanks in advance

On the question of the size of the database, there is no real answer - as it varies between client requirements. However the usual limit that most people work to is around 200gb, as that is a good trade off between having smaller databases and a backup and restore time that is reasonable. It very much depends on how much space you have both for the database and the backup location.

I use GFI max myself, and I usually have the limit set to 10gb above its current, then when it goes off again, just increase it. As long as the increases aren't too frequent (like weekly) then it is fine, it just keeps me abreast of the database size increase.
