We are running Exchange Server 2003 and we have about 400 users and a quota limit of 250MB per mailbox.
We had about 8GB of free space left, and that was always enough, but now since since about 2 weeks ago, all of a sudden the exchange databases are growing rapidly.
I already had to resize the disk and added an extra 40GB, but now that is already down to 33GB and still going down at a rate of 1GB a day.
The mailboxes do not seem to get larger. So what is taking up all that space?
Can someone give me some advice on how to troubleshoot this problem?
I have read something about offline defrag (eseutil), that might help to free up some space, but I think it will not solve the root cause.
