The Event Log records the results of the overnight defragmentation (which is
part of the built in overnight maintenance) and this includes a figure for
how much free space is in the store. Presumably this is how much eseutil /d
would shrink the file(s) on disk by.

I have found that even though the .edb may not shrink by much, the .stm file
usually shrinks quite dramatically.
