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.

Thanks,
Wes

Weird.

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.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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.

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.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
