Eseutil check list

Exchange 2000 Standard.
Win 2k Server
Current EDB size 14 gigs.
I added up the mailbox sizes and it said 4 gigs total.
(i've recently (last 8 months) put into policy a limit of mailboxes forcing users to archive data, so it makes sense that the mailboxes only total'd 4 gigs).

So I'm assuming that I have aproximately 10 gigs of white space.
Which means I need to do an offline Defrag to get that space back (which will also make my backups a little bit faster).

So what I need is a check list of things to cover for doing this.

@ Free space on Drive = 3 times edb.... check
@ backup done................................... check
@ printed guide on Eseutil .................. I think this will work.  http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Exchange-ISINTEG-ESEUTIL.html


@ I know I need to dismount the store,
@ Then Run Eseutil. (I believe I can run that from a command prompt, but please correct me if i'm wrong.)
@ Defragment
@ Mount Store.
@ Make new backup.


1) please correct me where I'm wrong.
2) please let me know if I'm missing anything.
3) please stop me if this isn't necessary (be advised that this is standard, not enterprise, so there is a 16gb mailstore limit.)

doesn't that event only tell me how much "free space" i've reclaimed as white space? Not how much total I have.
