Doing a defrag will recover most of the space.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange data base

I have an exchange database that is being backed up using Veritas backup
exec. Currently the size that is displayed for the priv.edb using windows
explorer is 6,110,728kb. (about 6.1gb) however after reviewing the size of
mailboxes in Exchange system manager I doesn't look like my priv.edb file
should be nearly that size. It should be something more like 4 or 5 gb. Do I
need to compress my priv.edb? What exactly is happening? (Also when backing
up with veritas, there is actually about 7gb which is being backed up, I'm
assuming this is because of the verify which needs to run) Thanks in
