Exchange 5.0- tempdfrg.edb -URGENT

I used the Edbutil to defrag but didn´t know that the same amount of space is needed on the drive, so it only went I have a tempdfrg.edb file on the drive...would it be safe to delete this file as it is taking up a lot of space??

yes, the info store is left intact and the defragged version created as tempdfrg.edb until it completes. of course you have a backup of the information store from before you started right?
if you don't have enough space to run the defrag you can point the tempdfrg.edb file to be created on another server's share with the /t switch.

To elaborate on duncs comment about sending the tempdfrg.edb to a mapped drive on another machine.

On your Exchange server map a drive x:(or what ever you want, here I used x:)
Stop all msexchange services
At the command window type:

eseutil /d /ispriv /tx:\tempdfrg.edb

This will send the tempdfrg.edb file to the X: drive you just mapped. After you're done with the defrag the tempdfrg.edb file should be gone from x: drive.

Good Luck
