Mailbox Database Doubled In Size In Less Than 36 Hours RRS feed

  • Question

  • Exchange Server 2010 SP1 (Enterprise)

    In the past 36 hours my mailbox DB went from a little under 200GB to almost 450GB, and for the life of me I cannot figure out why.  We are a relatively small company, and nothing has changed on the Exchange Server recently in any way.  I don't see any problems in the event logs, and using TreeSize I can see that the Mailbox Database file is taking up all the space.

    How can I start to figure out what caused this?

    What are some things I can do to clean this up?

    I have very little experience troubleshooting Exchange problems such as this so any assistance is greatly appreciated.
