My priv.edb file has gone from 6 GB to 15 GB in just a week. What are
that I can look for to find out why? I looked at the mailbox resources and
see that my largest mailbox is just over 100MB, and after totalling up the
mailboxes, I only get about 5 GB.
I have done an offline defrag (takes forever because I have to temp it over
the network because I don't have enough free space on the drive), but it
didn't reduce it more than a few hundred MB. What else gets stored in here
anyway. I reduced my deleted items retention time from 30 days to 10 days a
few days before I did the defrag, but it still didn't shrink it at all. I
know that it can only get to 16GB (w/out Enterprise version), so I am quite
The only other thing that I can see that is strange, is that the IMS
mailbox has about 600 MB when looking at the properties for the IS. How do
I get into this mysterious mailbox? (This is when I look at the properties
of the Private Information Store's Mailbox Resources tab, it
isn't listed under the mailbox resources "subfolder")
Is there any place else that could be racking up space in the priv.edb?
Any help would be appreciated.
