  2. Is the 1GB a typo? Or is the message an error? If you navigate to the
    folder that holds the store, how big are the files?

    Have you done any major house keeping recently?

    Have you looked at:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/828070

    Once you get it down to a size that it will mount, you should do some
    housekeeping and apply Exchange SP2, which will allow you to go to 75 GB in
    increments of your choice. Note, do not ever allow the entire 75 GB, as it
    will become un mountable and unrecoverable.

  4. Have you access to the MS KB article yet? If not, use a search engine and
    try other sites. These things get replicated frequently. If you come up
    empty, post back here and I will cut and paste in, if possible, the relevant
    bits. Or, shoot me an email and I will send it to you directly.

    I asked about housekeeping to see if a defrag might shrink your database.
    But if no housekeeping has been done, there is little to no white space. I
    am frankly not sure that you could/should run the utilities against a non
    mounting store, and would have to check that first in any case.
