  • Import from PSTs

    Our client is currently using PSTs with an average size of 20-40mb with a combined total of 2gb on all PSTs . A new server is being built to utilize exchange. Will the exchange size for each user increase or decrease after the mailboxes are imported to exchange?

    The proposed partition sizes on the server is 10gb for the 2003 OS, Exchange on a 55gb and logs on 4.5gb. Is 10gb too big for the OS, can it be 8gb?
    Also, considering that the total size of data to be imported is @2GB should any of the partitions be adjusted to allow more / less space?

    Any recommendations would also be appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance
