We are running exchange 2000 for our emails. Our exchange binaries, queues, and transaction logs are placed in C:\exchsrvr directory. The exchange information stores, both private and public, are stored in drive E.
Can we defragment our C drive using the conventional file system defragmentation ?

Yes .... No problems
But it does work better it you can shutdown as many services as possible to allow the defrag access to all files. This is close as many open files as possible.
