MsExcange-"store.exe" - RAM hungry

By jps_dan ·
I guess you all heard about how hungry this "store.exe" process of Exchange is. I tried all day long to find a solution for this problem, but nothing. Do you know what's wrong? My server's been running for more than 3 months but this is the first time I saw this problem.
Do you have any solution or at least a small advice?

Buy More RAM

Store.exe is very hungry. The larger your .edb database files are the hungrier it gets. You have two options.

1.) Buy more RAM. Exchange and your server will thank you.

2.) Do an offline defrag of your exchange databases. This is the only way to recover free space within the Exchange databases and reduce the file size of the databases.

Make sure you have all the latest Exchange updates as well.

Here is a link to a Microsoft Technote on doing an ofline defrag:;EN-US;192185
