I have viewed the event log and it states The database has 17 megabytes of
free space after online defragmentation has terminated.
I still do not understand that only that much is available if I have deleted
mailboxes that totalled just under 1 gb.
If I am to buy a new hdd how easy is it to move the mailbox data base?
currently my exchange is setup on 2 partitions..1 being 1.95 gb with 700mb
remaining and 2nd partition 10gb with 26mb remaining.
Sorry for all the questions, I am quite new to this.
Are there any web sites you may know of that would help me in this?
