I was looking at some of my database on Exchange that seemed to be very large in size so first thought was that an offline defrag may be needed, but before I reach that point I wanted to know how much ‘slack’ or white space existed in each of my Exchange databases.
This was done by using the following command syntax in the Exchange Management Shell:
Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | Select-Object Server,Name,AvailableNewMailboxSpace
To export this into a CSV format the following can also be done, so that you can give to any management members for review of your findings:
Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | Select-Object Server,Name,AvailableNewMailboxSpace | Export-Csv C:workwhite_space_report.csv -Force -NoType
Next, I may find a way to setup this to email a weekly report…
