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 advance,
