  • Hi,

    Is there anyway to immediately reclaim the white space on a mailbox store after moving mailboxes and if so and there any problems whilst the store is still mounted

    Regards

  • Hi,

    You can only reclaim white space in a database store by taking the store offline and run eseutil.

    As this can take a very long time (depending on the database size) a better solution with less user downtime is to create a new database and then move the rest of the mailboxes away from the database. The old database can then be deleted.
