You do not have close to the needed amount of free disk space, you
should have at least 10Gb available for the defrag to work, if you have
more than 10Gb available on another drive you can directed ESEUTIL to
use that drive for the temp files.;en-us;192185

What is the best way to defrag a 10Gb database and what space
requirements are needed. We are running E2k SP3 on W2k SP3 with 2Gb free
disk space

Kind Regards
