How do you get the size of your priv.edb file down after doing a purge and enforcing storage limits on mailboxes. For some reason, I did a purge on old email messages and enforced storage limits and did not get back any space. What should I do? Hereis the given 38.5GB hard disk drive. The priv.edb is 23GB. Please help!

After removing the data from your priv.edb, the next step is to defragment the database using the eseutil utility. This will compress the priv.edb. This process takes a long time to complete, so be sure to schedule accordingly. Be sure to do a full backup of the priv.edb before you run this utility.

See Micro$oft Q article Q192185.

Good Luck!
