Check your Application Event Log for 1221 events. These will tell you how
much free space you really have in your databases.

        Hello everyone


        I just have this strange feeling. We got a 2003 SP2 server. I have a
mail box manager policy that cleans up junk mail and deleted items after a
week. Every Sunday night I get a report that at least 500 MB is deleted. So
when I do the offline defrag once a month at least I should get 2 GB of free
space back from database. But that doesn't happen. As an example I ran a
defrag last night after 2 month wait and I only got 120 megabyte back.
Something is not right and my database keeps growing larger. Any idea?
