    Default Ungodly amount of copy storage on exchange

    I have a 2 node Exchange 2003 cluster, (3 back end supporting 2 virtual nodes) running TDP for Exchange 5.5. According to Bocada, who I have reason to believe, my 2 Exchange servers are occupying 350 TB of space. My daily backups for these boxes are about 650 GB in total and my retention is 14 days. According to my math, that doesn't figure. What gives? Are there any queries that I can run to figure out what the heck is going on here? I should be looking at about 10 TB, not 350.

    Any thoughts?

    Can you lay down your whole retention policy?

    Hi,

    Check if the backupdelete='yes'
    If this parameter set to 'No' it don't allow the client to do delete to the files no matter what is in your policy .

    Are you running daily fulls? Or incrementals?

    I run full backups each day. Below is the policy for it.

    Policy Domain Name SG-EXCHANGE
    Policy Set Name ACTIVE
    Mgmt Class Name STANDARD
    Copy Group Name STANDARD
    Versions Data Exists 14
    Versions Data Deleted 1
    Retain Extra Versions 14
    Retain Only Version 14
    Copy Mode MODIFIED
    Copy Serialization SHRSTATIC
    Copy Frequency 0
    Copy Destination SG-EXCHANGEDISK
    Table of Contents (TOC) Destination -
    Last Update Date/Time 2008-02-26 13:04:54.000000
    Last Update by (administrator) $$CONFIG_MANAGER$$
    Managing profile DEFAULT_PROFILE

    I didn't think the backupdelete=yes had anything to do with expiration. Can you explain a little more to me about what you mean?
