Exchange 2010 Find Database White Space


In Exchange 2007 and earlier, after online defragmentation occurred, you could find your database whitespace by examining the application logs and viewing event ID 1221.

This is a pain to do, but luckily for us, Shay Levy posted an excellent article with a PowerShell function for Exchange 2007:

That works great for 2007, but in 2010 there are no more 1221 events,so Microsoft has provided a much better method of finding your whitespace.

In the Exchange Management Shell, enter the following one liner:

Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | Select-Object Server,Name,AvailableNewMailboxSpace
