offline Defrag of a database in Exchange 2007 and redirecting the temp.edb file somewhere else

I would like to do an offline defrag and redirect the tem.edb folder somewhere else due to insufficient disk space.
Not too sure what the command is:

eseutil /p "D:\corrupted dbase\I-Z Mailbox SG TEMP.edb" /t"D:\corrupted dbase"

and it does not work

Help

you must include a database file name
c:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Bin>eseutil /d "D:\ExchData\I-Z UsersMailbox Data\I-Z Mailbox SG TEMP.edb" /t"d:\corrupted Dbase\GoodOne\priv.edb"

Are you using Exchange enterprise edition?  If so create a new mailbox store and move the mailboxes and then delete the old one.  This is much safer in case you don't have time for the offline defrag to finish or something goes wrong.  You also don't have to have 1 1/2 times your database size to do it.
