Hi Scott, My lack of understanding in the eseutil is no doubt causing my problems, I tried several times over the weekend to run the defrag and couldn't get past the following error: ~~~~~ My command line: eseutil /d d:\exchvr\priv1.edb >> c:\exDefrag.txt eseutil /d d:\exchvr\pub1.edb >> c:\exDefrag.txt The result: Microsoft(R) Exchange Server(TM) Database UtilitiesVersion 6.0Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1991-2000.

Streaming File: TEMPDFRG4704.STM Operation terminated with error -2204 (JET_errSLVStreamingFileMissing, Cannot find streaming file associated with this database) after 2.0 seconds. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Any thoughts?
