EDB file is still big after a offline defrag

I have a problem with the size of a ebd file.

A few weeks ago we had a crash of one of the mailbox stores. We did run a repair on that store, but we stiil kept problems with attatchments that could'nt be send to mailboxes in that store and old attachments could not be opened.

After moving most of the mailboxes to an other store those boxes did function again.  

Now there are still 37 mailboxes in that particular store with a total size of about 2,5 gb. The total size of the edb file is about 30 gb. Last night I did a offlline defrag on that store resulting in a edb-file of 25 GB. Still much to large for the mailboxes that are still in it.

I know that I could move the other mailboxes to an other store and delete en recreate the store that is affected, but I would like to know if there is an other solution.


Thanks

Offline defrag will recover the space in the .edb file only after successfully running online defrag. After you moved all your mailboxes to a new store, you should have waited for online defrag (online maintenance) to complete and wait for event ID - 1221 to appear in the Application log.
This event ID will tell you the white space in the database that can be recovered after offline defrag and then offline defrag will give you correct and expected results.

Thanks,
