how to reduce size of exchange 2013 database

Hi,
i have an exchange 2013 server. I have 2 databases. i have already move all my mailboxes to another database except one mailbox. The size of the remaining mailbox probably only 3GB. But the database size is like 49GB.

I have also set the "*Keep deleted items for (days):" and "*Keep deleted mailboxes for (days):" to zero .

I have performed a eseutil /d on the database. It only shrink to 2GB to 37GB.

i was thinking of moving the remaining mailbox and delete the database and recreate a new database. but I read about this and learned that there will be some error because if some built in mailbox created within automatically.

Pls advise

1. Find the Arbitration Mailbox using the Exchange Management Shell (EMS):

Get-Mailbox -Arbitration | Where {$_.Name -like "SystemMailbox*" } | ft –wrap

2. Now create a new move request in order to move the system mailboxes to another mailbox database:

New-MoveRequest -Identity "SystemMailbox{1f05a927-32d1-4e19-8ea5-67eba859f541-yourGUID}" -TargetDatabase "dbxxxx"
