Mitz, thank you. I have been defragging our Exchange Database this evening, and im still a little stumped that even after clearing off 4Gb in people's mailboxes, there is little change.
I will give this a good read now!
When were the items deleted from the mailboxes? Was it in the last couple of days? do you have a retention policy in place?
It was throughout last week, Monday til about Thursday. We have Exchange 2000 with the 16Gb limit, put in place the 1Gb 'extention' that can be configured. I have since cleared about 4Gb and defragged, which seemed to have very little effect. As far as im aware there is no retention policy (First time I've really gone into Exchange here), although I could be wrong...
Becoming quiet frustrating!
Right click on the information store, and I think you will see a limits tab. This is were you would set the mailbox limits. At the bottom of the tab, there is a setting for keeping deleted items. If it is enabled, I think the default is 30 days.
You are spot on ajs, thanks very much for pointing that out to me, great help.
