exchange 2013 database size increases everyday
Posted on 2014-12-19
I am not a Exchange guy and having a very less knowledge regarding exchange servers.
We have exchange 2013 installed on server 2012. The actual mailbox size i get by running powershell command is around 54GB but the size of mailbox folder itself is around 217GB. Please see below the output of powershell command.
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | Select-Object Name,DatabaseSize,AvailableNewMailboxSpace | Sort-O
bject Name | fl
Name : Mailbox Database 0303672096
DatabaseSize : 54.13 GB (58,124,730,368 bytes)
AvailableNewMailboxSpace : 62.69 MB (65,732,608 bytes)
- Why there is discrepancy of size between Database actual size and folder size.
- what is the solution to overcome this problem
Really need help on this as this server is on VMware and we do not have more space to allocate to this exchange server.
Thanks in advance
