I tend to rather do a kind of online defrag with no downtime the following way: add a second DB, move mailboxes. Then delete the original DB. Is this an option?

trying running the command in quotes like below

eseutil /d "C:\mailbox db\My first organization.EDB"

if it still fails, then

1) copy this edb file to some other location on the server or other server. and rename the original file to _old
2) if you are copying the db to other server then  follow http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244525 and copy the required files to run eseutil.
3) Note down the edb name, rename the edb file so that it does not have spaces,
4) run eseutil /d on the renamed file.
5) after the defrag is successful, rename it again to the original name, and copy it to the exchange server at the original location.
6) Go to ESM, right click mailbox store -properties and then click this database can be restored from backup.
7) mount the db.
