Hi,
I am to clean up unnecessary space of Exchange 2010 as the Win 2008 server has only 2.5 Gb left. But I get this now.

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore>eseutil /MH DataStore.edb

Extensible Storage Engine Utilities for Microsoft(R) Exchange Server
Version 14.01
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All Rights Reserved.

Initiating FILE DUMP mode...
Error: Access to source database 'DataStore.edb' failed with Jet error -1032.

Operation terminated with error -1032 (JET_errFileAccessDenied, Cannot access file, the file is locked or in use) after 0.31 seconds

Open in new window

You need to dismount the store
This means users will not have access to mail during this operation
Until the store is remounted

Please also be aware that an offline defrag of an exchange database is a very time consuming exercise depending on the spec of the server and size of the database it can take many hours ( best perhaps to do it over a weekend ?)
