Hello, so I am working on an VM Guest Exch2010 system which is running out of C drive space quickly.  Less that 3GB left.  The DB white space is find over 40GB.  The total DB size is 550GB.  I see that the catalogdata folder keeps taking up space.  I have an immediate need to stop this...  

Secondary - Moving forward, I am planning on setting up a second Exchange Server DAG and move some of the mailboxes to this newly created Exchange Server.  Many questions on this I think.  But mainly, how do I "shrink" the DB size so my C drive gets some of that space back?
