I started defragging with ESEUTIL at about 7:00PM its now 1:00 AM and I'm only at 20%. I have a feeling it won't be finished by tomorrow morning.  Can I stop ESEUTIL so that I can mount the store and just re-run the defrag on the weekend? If so, what would be the best way to stop it?

I would've run it on a weekend but we had a ton of space that wasn't registering.

No you should NEVER ever stop running a defrag EVER.

Thanks for the replies.  Luckily the defrag did finish in time.  Normally I wouldn't stop the defrag unless it was an absolute necessity, and I was just wondering if anyone had stopped it before and if the results were a corrupted database.  Luckily I won't be forced to experience those results this morning, but I appreciate the replies.
