Hi Marco,

That seems highly unusual. You can check in the event log for the nightly 
on-line defrag report which will state how much whitespace (free) you have. 
That should be the amount you can reclaim with an offline defrag.

Check your command line options for the defrag, and remember that you need 110% 
of the size of the DB you are doing in freespace on the drive or another 
volume. Maybe it dumped out with an error?


Jamie.

Marco, there are two options I can think of immediately.  There may be more 
depending on the circumstances.

You're runnning into that problem because you don't have the enterprise version 
of Exchange with (virtually) unlimited database size.  You could upgrade to the 
enterprise version (I'm assuming Exchange 2000 or later).


Another option you have is to reduce the database size and run off-line 
defragmentation to reclaim the space.

I'd pick the first option if were me.  It would make more sense and be the 
least painful to you and the users.
