Information Store (1944) The database D:\Program
Files\Exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb has reached its maximum size of 16383 MB.
If the database cannot be restarted, an offline defragmentation may be
performed to reduce its size.

For more information, click http://www.microsoft.com/contentredirect.asp.

i ran the Offline defragmentation 2 months before and the performance was
normal .
But now, Users are experiencing slow outlook response. Do i need to run
the offline Defragmentation again.  I am planning to run it today.

I would like to hear suggesstions from the experts here about Offline
defragmentation. i will follow the steps described in the following link


"After you run the eseutil /d command on your mailbox store, you must
dismount all the stores in the storage group and remove any log files in
the Mdbdata folder before you remount the database"

Do i need to delete the LOG files in MDBDATA folder after running Offline
defragmentation. Can't i leave log files untouched (log file corruption

Thanks in advance.
