 I 've already done with ESEUTIL /P or /G or /D but it still did'nt reduce the 
PRIV.EDB size,
the ESE97 log only report that the database engine was stopped or started.
for additional info , my server using Winnt 4.0 sp 6a with Exchange server 5.5 
sp 4

do u have other solution ?

thank's and regards,

There has to be an error message. Look in the Application log for any ESE97
logs. What I would do is run ESEUTIL with the switches you need, but pipe
the text to a text file like this:

eseutil /g /v /x /o >defrag.txt

If you do have errors, they will show up in this text file. You can also
run the /p, BUT I RECOMMEND MAKING A BACKUP OF THE FILE BEFORE YOU RUN /P.
This will remove corruption and will not tell you what it is deleting. This
will also reduce the size of your EDB the most. Running the /D will only
defrag the database for faster response, but it does not reduce the size of
the file that much. I recommend that you /G, then /D, then /P so that you
can make sure you database is in a consistant state, and that it is intact
without data corruption.

Hi all,

I have a 11 GB priv.edb which is giving me problems. 

I can't compacting that file using eseutil. while running eseutil I didn't
found any error message.
all users download their mailboxes to local disk, thats why i'd like to
compact that database.


What's the cause of this? Any idea? 

Thanks and regards.
bongkie.
