ESEUTIL problems, exchange 2003
Posted on 2009-04-30
Our 400gb Public Folder Database has completely filled the drive it is on, and it has 100gb of white space in.
I kicked off an offline defrag with this syntax -
E:\EXCHSRVR\MDBDATA>"C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\eseutil" /d /p pub1.edb /tX:\tempdefrag.edb
and it started ok, and has been running now for 8 hours OK.
The problem I have is that while the temp file specified, X:\tempdefrag.edb, file is growing OK, there is also another temp file, 'TEMP1616.edb' that is growing in the original ebd location folder, ie e:\EXCHSRVR\MDBDATA\TEMP1616.edb' .
It is now at 400Mb, and E:\ only has another 100mb free.
Is this other temp file going to be present wherever I run the command from, or does it default to the DB location?
And if so, how can I safely stop a esetutil so I can restart it?
