I have 13gb private store folder  on my exchange 2000. I’d like to defrag it with

eseutil /d Database_Name [options]

However, I do not have sufficient space on same drive. I do have another local drive with sofficient disk space.
What is the easiest way to compact my exchange database with minimum down time?
Thank you
LP

How much white space are you going to gain?
A 13gb store is peanuts, and unless you are going to gain at least 7gb back it isn't something I would even consider. Offline defrag should not be considered a regular task - it is not something that has to be done to maintain Exchange.

In case you are desperate for some space, you can use /t and /f options to redirect temp. database creation to the spare drive.

i.e

eseutil /d <PathToEDB> /s <PathToSTM> /t <PathToTempEDB> /f <PathToTempSTM>

See command help for more options.

I was able to get priv1 down to 5.6gb however public stays same size?
since backup exec 11 has granula restore and require to be backed up localy on a backup server it make a differnce.
any comments on why public didn't get any white space?
thank you
