Yes, how long is a piece of string?!
Is there any way of estimating how long it might take to defrag an Exchange Server 2003 "priv1.edb" which is about 2 GB in size, probably hasn't been touched since it was first set up about a year ago, is on a fairly fast hard disk, with just enough free space to allow for the 110% extra for the defrag, where the server has 1 GB of memory and runs happily (usually) with a maximum of about 600-650 MB used?
If anyone has any stats of time taken vs. Information Store size for their own box, I'd be interested. I really need to know whether it will take 2 hours or 10 hours, so as to plan when to do it. I would prefer not to work at the weekend, and so would like to check if it would be necessary...
In addition, does the ESEUTIL /MS dump contain any useful information which might assist with the above question?
