Eseutil to check for White Space?

Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I heard that the event log events ID 1221 is a real innacurate way of checking for white space as a percentage of your totall disk space.

Some internet SOP mentioned to do some maintenance when white space consumes 30% of your totall disk space or store size?

In any case how do I go about figuring this out via Eseutil and what formula would I use to figure this out using the eventID 1221?

Ah ok the Eseutil /MH option and multiply 4,096 by the summation totall at the end of the dump

Thats just for one database though. and usually only do this on a just restored database which means it could take hours to do all stores correct?

How would I go about it via the EventID 1221 instead?
