Symptoms

Consider the following scenarios.

Scenario 1

  • In the MsExchangeMailboxReplication.exe.config file, you set DefaultCompletedRequestAgeLimit to 0.00:10:00, and then you restart the Mailbox Replication Service (MRS).

  • You run the following cmdlet:

    New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox Administrator -Name Export1 -Filepath "\\localhost\c$\temp\Export1.pst"

  • Before 10 minutes expire, you delete or move the .pst file.

  • After the timer expires, the job is picked up, and a new .pst file of 265 K is created.

In this scenario, if the .pst file is not deleted, its modified time will change, and its size will increase by 248k.

Scenario 2

  • You run the following cmdlet:

    Run New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox Administrator -Name Export2 -Filepath "\\localhost\c$\temp\Export2.pst"

  • After the export is finished, you run the following cmdlet:

    Get-MailboxExportRequest | Remove-MailboxExportReqeust

  • After about 24 hours expire, the job is picked up, and a new .pst file of 265k is created.

In this scenario, if the .pst file is not deleted, its modified time will change, and its size will increase by 248k.
