    Hello,

    I came in and our SBS 2003 box hard drive was full. We have an 80 gig
    hard drive. It has had about 30 Gigs free for the last six months and now
    all over the sudden it is full. We have ran our anti virus software and have
    not found any viruses. I deleted a couple of profiles only about 80 MB and
    rebooted the box. After rebooting the 80 MB is gone as well. There seems to
    be a process of something that is filling up the hard drive. Is there
    something else I can check to figure out why our drive keeps filling up?
    Thanks.

  2. Hi Jake,

    Did you run the Backup wizard and are you making backups?

    Marina,

    Yes we are running backups. It seems that the exchsrvr log file is the
    cause for the disk space filling up. It was 30 gigs big. I deleted it and
    rebooted but it seems to keep filling up. Any ideas on how to resolve this?
    Thanks.

    It may be soo that uve got lots of badmail and that will
    fill up your disk. Look in "C:\Program
    Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\BadMail" and see if you got
    any files there if you do soo you can delete them.

    If u dont have a Backup prog for your Exhange you will
    even got a lots of 5Mb log files in "C:\Program
    Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA"

    Good Luck

  5. Hi Jake,

    You shouldn't delete the transactionlogs manually. Check if your AV program
    is scanning the Exchange folders. If so, turn that off.

    Hello,

    It looks like our Queue is extremly large. There seems to to 391 queue
    with over 600 msgs, on average, per queue. Is there a way to delete all of
    the messages in these queues? How can I verify that the messages are
    actually leaving the system?

    exchange logs will continue to fill up they are deleted
    when a sugsessfull backup is completed. check and make
    sure you server is not running and open relay?
