    Exchange Size


    Having noticed that my Exchange was creeping up to 7GB, I went around to the
    main users and got them to delete items from there Inbox, Sent folders and
    to delete them again from the Deleted folder but the size is still 7GB

    What else do I have to do

    Thanks in advance

    You would need to run the eseutil program to actually regain the drive space,
    but I wouldn't recommend it. Exchange runs its own internal defragger which
    keeps the database operating smoothly.

    If you really want to get the drive space back, then you will have to be
    prepared to run the eseutil program. Minimum amount of available drive space
    that you will need to run this program on a 7GB PRIV.EDB is about 18GB (7
    for the existing edb, 10 1/2 free for it to perform its compressing/defragging
    magic) - the drive space MUST be on the same partition as the database file.


    Unless you're getting an error message, I would want to prepare for compressing/defragging
    by developing enough available space, but leave it alone if you're running
    Exchange 5.5 SP2 or higher. It usually manages itself quite well. Just
    keep those users deleting old/unneeded email!
