Just make sure you have at least 18+Gb of free space, on the server or on a
temp drive somewhere.

Subject: [exchangelist] Off line Defrag.

We have an Exchange 2000 standard edition running on Windows 2000.
Yesterday the mailbox store reached it 16GB limit. I increase it temporarily
using the registry fix I found on I have gotten users to
clean up their mailbox and now I need to do an off line defrag. I spoke with
the guy who set this box up over 2 years ago and he said that he has never
done an off-line defrag before. So this will be the first time running it on
this server. Is there anything I need to be concerned with running off line
defrag on this exchange for the first time. I have read up on it and it
seems simple enough, I will do a complete backup of the exchange before
defrag, and I setup test box to test this on first. Is there anything I
should be aware of?

Thanks for your help.
