Since you need 110% of db size anyway to perform defrag, I've always been a
fan of creating a second store, moving the users to it, and then deleting
the original db.  Seems faster, and much safer.  That is of course if you
have the disk space on the same server.  If not, then defrag may be your
only option.

I have exchange 2000 standard edition w/SP3.
My database is at 15GB used (2GB free).  I have had the users clean up their
mailboxes, but have not seen a drop in the database size.
Exchange has been up and running since the fall of 2001.  What can I do to
clean up the database?

Thanks
