This is your white space.  "white space" is free space within the database.

There is no magic formula, this is it.

Do nothing, for that amount of space it's not worth taking your store down for.

See my guide here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2730-Exchange-Offline-Defrag.html

Exchange will use the free space before it increases the size of the database.

Did you read my guide? It tells you to look for event 1221 this tells you the whotespace in the database.

It has nothingto do with physical storage space.

this is the thing i am not able to understand my edb file size is 112 GB

as per my understanding the event "The database "srv110 SG1\srv110 SG1MS1" has 1552 megabytes of free space after online defragmentation has terminated" shows Approx 1.5 GB is free after defrag.

then how could i be able to know the remaining whitespace in database. as per my understanding online only reset databse not reduce the size of database just tell me the formula or white space available in my database.
