Raxco's perfectdisk is tremendous. It will defrag the exchange databases
by linking it into the exchange effect a gui for them. I
use it weekly and have had no trouble with it at all.

I am familiar with eseutil and isinteg however Microsoft strongly
recommends against using the built-in defrag utilities as they can (and
I have seen it totally screw up an edb) damage the edb.  I've seen
messages damaged and attachments blown into oblivion - there's NO way I
would ever use the utility on a functional/ing edb.1

Taking the db offline for defraging would just be too inconvenient - I
was thinking that it would be nice to use the cheesily named
"set-it-and-forget-it" function of Diskeeper.

The first time I saw the defrag utility in Windows 2000 all I could
was: "Gee, now this looks familiar..." :-)

Thanks guys.
