Sometimes, this might be your problem. Exchange creates a temperary *.STF
file in c:\exchsrvr\MDBDATA\ while your system process a message. The *.STF
file is about 133% to 200% larger than the original message.
Anyway, I have not solution for and let know if you someone know how to move
this *.STF temperary to point to some other drive and directory. Performance
Optimizer doesn't solve this *.STF stuff.
We sometimes move audio file about 300MB or more. The network is fine, but
300MB of message file + 2*300MB of *.stf temp file is about GB. 3 of those
messages kill the whole system.
I am highly appreciated if any help.
