4 megabytes of free space after online defragmentation has terminated.

Hello ,
I keep seeing this entry in the event log.  

The database "First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (Server)" has 4 megabytes of free space after online defragmentation has terminated.

The drive has plenty of free space.  Should I be concerned about this message?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You should not be concerned about that message at all. It is logging the amount of white space which is available in the databases after online maintenance has tidied up old database pages and other objects. It has nothing to do with free space on the drive and at this stage, you need not be concerned.

I'd suggest you review http://www.amset.info/exchange/event1221.asp for more information.

The event that you see with the above description is event 1221.
There is absolutely no harm and cause of concern with this message and this is the default message/ event that Exchange generates after an online maintenance/online defrag has completed.
The free space that is mentioned here (4 MB) is the "white space" in the database and has nothing to do with the physical drive that the database is located on.
There is no need to be alarmed at the "terminated" word also
These MS articles should explain the event better
