journaling had placed 19 gigs to exchange store

By cmlcc ·
all were processed, and the store as shown on exchange sys manager showed a reduction to 4 gigs but explore still shows the 19 gigs.

i had reduced the time to keep deleted items to 0 but it hasn't made a diffeence.

exchange has increased to its normal exceptabe speeed.

how long will it take to clean out exchange so that the backup can go back to normal one tape?

thank you

There is only 4 gigs data in the file, but it still occupies 19 gigs of disk space. You'd have to compress that database somehow.

If you can, just delete it (probably by turning off journaling), then re-enable journaling with your new settings.

Also, ensure that Explorer has refreshed its display, in case it is simply showing old information.

You may want to have a look at this, particularly the links at the bottom, for some info on journaling.
This, or a related download, may help

Knowing which version of Exchange and Windows server you are running may help.

Being the same as Outlook

by ComputerCookie In reply to My guess:

it is probably correct what you're saying, as Sean suggested I'd compress the file whilst exporting it, the import it and then export it, I've done this with outlook but not exchange and don't have it installed at the moment.

it is 119 gigs not 19 in exporer for exchange storage file

by cmlcc In reply to Being the same as Outlook

Thank you, I have stopped journaling, and removed the mail box. Exchange is now up to speed. the edb file is still 119 gb in explorer and exchange will still umount itself on occasion. (mailbox limit is maxed at 75 gig) I am running SBS 2003 which has exchange 2003

I am waiting to see if exchange maintenance will take care of that problem.
