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

See my guide here: https://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.
actually you are not getting my question below is event i got on my monitoring tool

"SRV110 - Check local disks free space :  (disk J:\) Logical disk J:\ has 7.38% (11,340 MBytes) of free space remaining which is less than both error thresholds of 10% and 50,000 MBytes of free disk space for local disks not containing Exchange Tr"

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.
