In exchange system manager I drill down to First Storage Group - Mail Box Store() - MAilboxes. I then add up the column Size (KB) and the total is 98G but if I look at the priv1.* and Pub1.* they total about 58G. My boss believes we are out of space because our DB limit is 75G. Can someone help with an explaination please why the mailboxes total to 98G. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Don’t forget to include the priv1.stm in your calculation. Also don’t forget that Exchange uses single instance storage inside the mail store. Any email which is sent to multiple people in one mail store is only stored once on the exchange server, so the total size of each mailbox is not going to equal the size of the database.
