I have a 70 GB hard drive hosting my Public Folder store and its un-fortunately a few hundred MB from being maxed out. I've cleared up about 50 GB from the Public Folders but the white space for the store is still huge. I don't have the recommended space for the offline defrag (only a few hundred MB left) so I'm not sure what to do.

Is it possible to move the Public folder store to another remote drive, defrag it, and move it back? I've never run into this before and I'm hoping for some suggestions.
