Exchange 2000 Public Folders size

By mikeysykes ·
My Exchange 2000 Public Folders have grown incredibly in size and I can't see why. I have tried the all the obvious settings and limits, backup etc but to no avail. The wierd thing is that through the Windows Explorer Window the file Pub1.edb is showing (1.5GB) far greater than what the Exchange manager shows me (about 200MB, when you add the sizes of each folder up). Why is this space taken up? I am desperate because my disc is almost full. Therefore 200 Points.

1) You may need to off-line defragment you message store - see events 1221 in Event Log, it says how much free space is in your DB.
See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q192185 for more information.
2) You could set the retention period in your IS properties (go to Public Information Store properties, Limits tab). If so, messages are not deleted physically for the time you specified there.

HTH, Maxim

Already tried online defrag within the store and tried offline defrag of folder etc. Didn't make any difference.
