On a compressed NTFS partition, the Microsoft Exchange Server information store, may get corrupted when its size reaches about 4 gigabytes (GB). This can cause failure of the information store.


A compressed NTFS partition can adversely affect the Microsoft Exchange Server by causing one or more of the following problems:

  • High CPU utilization.
  • Enumeration of large NTFS directory may take a long time.
  • Degradation of NTAS server with NTFS partition that includes many Files.
