I wanted to find out if there is a way to do offline defrag of a single database and keep rest online. We are running Exchange 2007 currently have 4 databases.
EX Database and Mailbox database are on the same disc, Ex DB size is 350 GB and Mailbox DB size is 1.07 TB.
MB3 and MB4 are on two separate discs.

I would like to defrag just Mailbox DB (1.07 TB) I have moved all mailbox to other DB except two which are 50 GB and 2 GB rest is empty space.
Mailbox Database" has 1072331 megabytes of free space after online defragmentation has terminated.
