    Default Strange filesize

    I have a fresh install of Zimbra 8.0.2 on ubuntu 12.04.1
    From this time i am wondering why my backup space i growing so much.

    Now i have found the issue.
    The file "/opt/zimbra/data/ldap/mdb/db/data.mdb" have a size from 80GB!
    Code:
    524K -rw------- 1 zimbra zimbra 80G Jän 21 09:20 /opt/zimbra/data/ldap/mdb/db/data.mdb
    The strange thing is my data partition is only 50GB !

    Code:
    /dev/xvda3       50G    4,2G   44G    9% /opt/zimbra
    I have done a filesystemcheck and there are no problems.

    How does this work and how can i fix them ?

    There's northing strange about it, file file you mention it is a sparse allocated filed and does not actually occupy 85GB. Search the forums for details and the solution, this has been discussed several times.
