Hello all,

Just a quick question about offline defrag of and exchange 2000 database.
I've backed up the database and about to start. i dont' have circular
loggin g turned on so there are all these log files in the MDBdata folder
with the PRIV1.edb and PUB1.edb files. After running the defrag can I
delete the log files?

What I've actually done is, I've made a copy of the mdb data folder onto
another drive and I'm gong to defrag the copy of the database not the one
in the priginal mdbdata folder. Can I then delete the log files from the
that folder and  replace the the defraged database into the directory of
the original one?
