Using Disk Defragmenter to defrag a partition with an exchange .stm and .edb on it.
Posted on 2006-06-30
I'd like to defragment the partition that is currently storing my .stm and .edb files on it to improve performance. (not using exchange to defrag the store.) At the same time, not really interested in destroying my exchange server.
I've done some research and seem to find a: very little on the topic, and b: opinions on both sides of the fence.
So I'm looking for someone who has used defrag.exe on their exchange databases, and what your results / findings are.
Please, if you have an opinion back it up with some facts / experiences. Not just a "ya, do it," or a "no never do it."
This is running on a SBS2003.
