  • Storage group EDB database size

    Dear All,
    My exchange version is 2007 , it seems have problem that haven't auto reduce the edb size. Why I find this problem that I have archive some mail to local howerver I find the database size haven't reduce. I use the powershell script to show all the mail box size and that is less than 20GB compare with current database size.
    Thanks,
    Ricky

    This is standard behaviour -- the database will not shrink - instead it will mark space as free and use it for storage of new content

    To shrink the database, the best option is to create a new, empty, one and move mailboxes
