Determine Server Storage Capacity - 1.Jul.2015 4:17:02 PM

I am on Exchange Server 2010. My question is; how do I determine how much space is available on the server for new users? I know I can simply check the capacity of the hard drive (Windows Explorer) and determine how much is in use? What I need to know is how much space the total users occupy as compared to the Exchange database total?

Please Advise

Thanks for the information…

However, I have to agree on a number of comments from the referenced article regarding it being silly to take a database offline just to determine the amount of available free space?

My issue is that I need to provide my users with more storage space for their content. When I checked using the reference command, I receive the following:

DatabaseSize - 39 GB
AvailableNewMailboxSpace - 492 MB

I deleted some accounts that were no longer active, which I believe should have created some available space. However, it is not reflected in the results. Is there a way that I can determine (without bringing the system to a stop) how much space I truly have available? I have the physical space, I just need to be able to determine how I make more of it available to the database?
