    Defragmenting & Exchange 2000

    We have a Windows 2000 server with Exchange 2000 on it. After analysing the volumes on the server, two of the volumes require defragmenting. One of these volumes has Exchange on it. I have been told that I should not defragment this volume as Exchange looks after this itself.

    Is this correct? Will defragmenting the volume with Exchange on it cause some problems for Exchange?
    Thanks

    Anthony, you seem to have been ignored.

    This is an area I have little expertise in, although I baby sit one of our corporate Exchange servers. Exch 5.5 and WinNT 4.?.

    I also have been advised not to defrag the volumes on this server as it takes care of itself. I've never pursued the matter, just taken it at face value.

    Have you tried the MS Knowledge Base?

    <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Hey, no need to crawl away. I've done similar so often that I'd have gravel rash through to my back bone by now.

    I just might check out the subject at the KB for myself.

    Thanks Granville.
    I'm sure I had looked in the MS knowledge base before posting the message, however, I have now found some information about when and how to defrag Exchange 2000 (Q192185 and more!)
    I will now crawl away and hide.
