Exchange Eseutil /D - Error with No Space Left on Disk

Long story short we had to recover the MS Exchange Database and all that good stuff.

Server 2003
Exchange 2003

Ran Eseutil /P and that ran fine

I am now trying to run Eseutil /D but get this error.

Error for Exchange Eseutil /D
The Size of the EDB Files.

EDB and STM File Size
The Size of the disk.

Disk Space
I am not quite understanding why it won't create the temp files it needed because it should have plenty of space.

When I run the command it creates these files and then errors out with the Error Above.

Creates Temp Files at 2,056 KB
Any help would be great.  I tried running the same command with the /T on a drive that has 500GB of free space and I get the same error.

I can provide any information needed.

Try moving the priv.edb and priv.stm file into its own separate folder (all on its own) and restarting that command. I have seen some funky stuff with other files within there.

Copying the .EDB and .STM files to a new folder.  Will run /D on these items in the new folder when completed copying.  Will report back when completed.

I rebooted the server after the /P and it seems to be doing the defrag.  I can't believe I didn't think about that earlier but didn't see it necessary.  I will still update the question if it completes the defrag after the reboot.

issue has been resolved after reboot with the defrag.

Probably  Eseutil uses system variable %TEMP% which points to drive c: . Drive C: only have some free MB.

Please, point %TEMP% to drive D:

I rebooted the server after the repair and the defrag went through fine and no longer gave the free disk space error.
