Exchange 2000 database

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.


Can anyone please explain me why Exchange 2000 is using 2 differend files for database:
priv.edb and priv.stm. Both are alost the same size. I'm asking because in Exchange 5.5 I had only .edb files (priv and pub).
Is there a way to 'defragment' Exchange database. I checked how much mail users have in their mailboxes, and come up with the size of 1.6GB. But the database is over 4 GB? Why??

Thanks in advance
Regards
Miha

Exchange 2000 database

Hi,

Here's a definition from Technet.

Information Store

The information store manages the storage of data. It
continues to be referred to as the Messaging Database
(MDB), but there are major design changes to the MDB in
Exchange 2000, as well as the option to have multiple
MDBs. In Exchange 2000, the information store can store
data in the form of e-mail messages, documents,
spreadsheets, voice, video, and so on. The message
contents (in the RFC 822 format) are held in an Internet
content store (.stm file), which is also referred to as
the streaming database file. The information store also
contains the .edb file, which is the property store and
holds the header information of the message.

differend files for database:
asking because in Exchange 5.5 I had only .edb files (priv
and pub).
checked how much mail users have in their mailboxes, and
come up with the size of 1.6GB. But the database is over 4
GB? Why??
