Hey all, I want to reduce the size of my e2k databases, and ive heard eseutil will defrag and free up clear space in the databases. Whats the deal with this tool as ive heard people say it can corrupt the db and all sorts of nightmare stories. Ive read the MS articles regarding this, but they arent particularly useful or descriptive. I know this subject has come up time and again, so I apologize for going over old subjects.
