MDBData Folder

  1. The Size of Priv1 .EDB and HTML on my Exchange 2000 both are making like 15 GB although I don't have a big list of email accounts, its max 50. It 16 GB a week back I run offline defragmentation and used NT Backup. It reduces just 3GBs and today its again on 15GB. Definately if in a week it gained 2GB then in 2 or 3 days my Exchange will be down.

    Kindly help me how to reduce the size of these files.

    16GB is the builtin database size limit for Exchange. Don't worry - it will never grow beyond that size.

    In that case you have to tweak Exchange parameters to reduce the time to keep deleted items and such.

    This is something you will ind in the Friendly Manual.
