So this is going to be one of those rare blog posts where I thank a system administrator. In this case it is our outgoing system administrator Grant Holliday who just gave me more space on Exchange:
Thanks Grant! As it happens I was considering what I should do. The problem is all that space isn’t actually just stuff that I am hoarding (I delete almost all my e-mails), it is my “Sent Items” folder which I find is useful as a replacement for my failing memory.
I could pull it all out and put it into a separate PST file but then I would loose that file. On the other hand having such a big Exchange store means that it creates problems for disaster recovery and also when I rebuild my machine.
What to do…
