By default when you run the defrag on the exchang server it creates an new edb file in the %TEMP% location (Default is the C: Drive)  If you Exchange DB is 15GB you need at least 15GB free on the %TEMP% drive.  You can redirect the temp location by using syntax of the eseutil.

XADM: Eseutil Ends with -1808 (Jet_ErrDiskFull) on /P or /G


 DESCRIPTION:  Performs off-line compaction of a database.
      SYNTAX:  ESEUTIL /d <database name> [options]
  PARAMETERS:  <database name> - filename of database to compact, or one of
                                /ispriv, /ispub, or /ds (see NOTES below)
    OPTIONS:  zero or more of the following switches, separated by a space:
              /l<path> - location of log files (default: current directory)
              /s<path> - location of system files (e.g., checkpoint file)
                         (default: current directory)
              /b<db>   - make backup copy under the specified name
              /t<db>   - set temp. database name (default: TEMPDFRG.EDB)
              /p       - preserve temporary database (i.e., don't instate)
              /o       - suppress logo
      NOTES:  1) The switches /ispriv, /ispub, and /ds use the Registry
                 to automatically set the database name, log file path,
                 and system file path for the appropriate Exchange store.
              2) Before defragmentation begins, soft recovery is always
                 performed to ensure the database is in a consistent state.
              3) If instating is disabled (i.e., /p), the original database
                 is preserved uncompacted, and the temporary database will
                 contain the defragmented version of the database.
With that information your command should be;

eseutil /d /ispriv /tD:\TempEDB.edb

**The D: drive should be replace with what ever drive you have some free space large enough to support your Exchange DB
Nothing mutch but a space between /t and d:\

eseutil /d /ispriv /t D:\TempEDB.edb
Thanks for the correction... I couldn't remember if there was a space or not.  Havne't had to do it in a while and I didn't feel like taking down my server to test.
