Information Store ????

My Information Store was about 20Gig when I took over as a admin, I put some 
restrictions on all users, delete bunch of mailboxes from inactive users, 
etc. Per my calculations my Information store should be about 12Gig, but is 
not, It's been over a week and it is still at 12Gig, what is going on;
is there's somthing else I need to do, Thanks.

the edb file will not shrink until you perform an offline defrag...but I
wouldn't bother...Exchange is very good at reusing whitespace in the
database...

Hi Mark

Have you performed on offline defrag of the Exchange database?, when you 
perform an offline defrag of the database the size should reduce.

The information store does not shrink unless you actually take it down
and do an offline defragmentation on it.

Look in your event log (app) for Event ID 1221. That will give you an
indication of the amount of free space available.
Since you talk about 20GB you presumably have Enterprise Edition
(there being a 16GB limit on Standard)
If it does tell you that there is 8GB of free space then you know that
it will be a long time before the store starts growing again.
You can either leave it alone or do eseutil with the /d switch.

Moving the Mailbox Store in Exchange 2003
I have used the Exchange System manager to move the log files and the streaming database file (priv1.esm) to a new, larger drive but when I tell the system to move priv1.edb the sytem copies the file, says it is at 100% and then just spins, never finishing the database entry and re-mounting the store. I look and find the file now in 2 places and the System Manager still has the entry referencing the original location. I can then re-mount the store at its original location and things run fine. Is there a way to dismount the store, copy it to the new location and then manually chang...
