  • database size

    Using exchange 2007 sp2. I have used a program called 'outlook true archive' to archive 2GB of mail in a mailbox. After online maintenance, I was expecting event id 1221 to show an increase in white space. but it has not. why would this be?

    Re: database size

    Did the online maintenance complete overnight?
    How long is your deleted items retention set for?
    Did the archive actually work?
    Is the mailbox showing smaller in Exchange now?
    Did you receive 2GB of more email in other mailboxes in that DB?
    cheers

      online maintenance completed.
      deleted item retention is 10 days - as I have archived or moved the mails, not deleted, does deleted retention apply?
      archive completed successfully.
      mailbox which was archived has reduced in size.
      have not received 2 gb in other mailboxes since archiving.

        Deleted Item retention applies no matter how the content is removed from the database. Fortunately it does, I have lost count the number of archiving tools I have seen lose data.

          Should I expect to see a 2gb increase in free space 10 days after I have archived the mail?

            I would usually expect to see any increase in white space a day or so after the deleted item retention period has passed.
