The ideal defrag is by using exchange utility called eseutil .  Still
you must have some more free space, ideally you must have double the
size of the database as free space.

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
