I am not an exchange admin. I am running a 2008 r2 server with exchange 2010. My data HDD on the server(Exch/Mailbox/) is taking up all the space with multiple mailbox's having huge EDB files. I used exchange management shell to show the mailbox and which is under each edb. All mailbox's have huge journal files like you would expect. My question... I know i can just create a new mailbox/edb and move the address's to the new box but, i would lose the data. Is there a way with SQL I can move half the file out and keep half the database? possibly by date to a server i set up as say an archive mail server ? how could i do this with SQL. Is it possible there is a walk through for this ? My server has started to slow down considerably now that I have less and less space remaining. It is typically collecting around 1gb a day and growing. Unsure of how to proceed and keep relevant files based on timeline. Nightly backups are preformed on site and daily backups are preformed and taken off site.
