You might want to look in the Application Log and check for event id
1221 this will tell you how much Whitespace you have in the DB

Subject: [exchangelist] Database Size question
Sensitivity: Private

I was comparing the size of my database backups to my mailbox level
backups and I found a discrepancy of about 10 Gigs (Database is 35 GB
Mailboxes are 25 GB).  Is there some kind of overhead to the database
that I am missing??  Should I do an offline defrag of the stores? Just
curious, nothing earth shattering J  Thanks!!!


Also, there usually aren't many log files because I do a full backup
every night and also each day an Incremental is done every two hours. In
other words, I don't believe log files account for the difference.
