Would checking the fix problems/update user disk space total do what you mentioned Joe?  Also would you do this for a contents or a structure check?

if I recall, I think you have to run an Audit Report job against the PO/Users to update the usage totals that you used to see in c1/GWAC. I have an weekly gwcheck that does it

We have an open defect with Novell on this because the GW2014R2 Admin Console doesn't update the size totals correctly. But from what I can gather, it's not the highest priority for Novell right now.  It would be awesome if it actually worked and you could just export this information all in a couple clicks.

If I look in GroupWise Admin at that same user (the one that GWCheck said was using 121 GB) under Diagnostics, Information, it says he is using 39,312 MB.  Doesn't quite match up.  Anyone know why there is a discrepancy?

I use GWMBSize (can be downloaded here: http://www.anykeyonline.nl/oldsite/) and run it against the GWCheck Log files from a User Contents check.  But I wonder if there is anything built into the new GroupWise Admin that provides this information.

Where is the most accurate place to view the sizes on the system?  We're on 2012sp4

I can't beat that.  The largest one here is only 121 GB.

Hi All,

In the tradition of the longest uptime of Netware servers, I wanted to put the question out as to what is the biggest individual GW active mailbox anyone has seen out in the wild?

I think I have a good starter - a user at a long standing customer has an active mailbox of 130Gb+, not counting archives! (Will get the pic next time I'm onsite)...

So what has anyone else seen as just crazy size mailboxes?

Sorry - no prizes, just bragging rights! :)
