Hi,
few months before i tried to defrag my exchange mailboxes and i stopped it when i saw that my disk space in "c drive " is showing very low.
Now when i checked "C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin" I can see a file name "TEMPDFRG7900.EDB" which is approx 7gb of space.

can i delete this file ? as i need to free some space in my c drive.

Please suggest.

Thanks Giri

I wouldn't recommend deleting that file as it is part of the defrag process.

Why did you stop the process? If you allowed it to carry on the process woul have finished and deleted any of the temp EDB files it created.

Sorry thinking about it, it is safe to delete the TEMP EDB file.

Hi ,
You can delete the file. Its the Temporary Defrag files.
When you run defrag you can  tell the temp file to be kept in alternate location using /t  . Command is
eseutil /d "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb" /t d:\tempdefrag.edb
