ESEUTIL -- Syntax and general question

Hi,

I have some general questions regarding the offline defrag process as it 
pertains to my little scenario...

Basic Info:
- Exchagne DB store - 25 Gb  (F:\ drive)
- drive space where DB store resides has only 15 Gb of free space, C drive 
only has 6.3 Gb of free space.
- have mapped a drive (V:) to another server with 120 Gb of free space 
(folder created is:  V:\ExchDefrag_Temp)
- ESEUTIL files are registered with the PATH for ease of use
- a full backup is scheduled once I finish the offline defrag

Here is the syntax I believe I am supposed to use:
From the Exchange server - 
c:\EUSEUTIL /d "F:\Mountain Top.edb" /tv:\ExchDefrag_Temp


Questions:
1.  Is the syntax correct as well as the network referrence within the 
syntax to put the temp files on the temp network share?
2.  Do the new defragged DB stores stay on the temp location and then I move 
them back to the original location on the Exchange Server?  Or is this taken 
care automatically?
3.  What about the transact files after offline defrag...should they be 
deleted or moved to a network share for safe keeping?


Thx,

Mel

Answers:
0. For starters, what is the reason to perform offline defrag? Find last 
1221 event in App Event log and see how much free space database has. If 
that is less then, say, 20% of database size - do not bother because 
file will grow to the same size relatively soon.
1. Looks fine.
2. Defragmented files are copied back, unless you specifically tell 
ESEUTIL to not do this with "/p" option.
3. You should perform online backup of that database immediately after 
defrag.

Thanks for checking the syntax.

To answer your question 0. -- We have just gone thru a major DR with 
Exchange and we have had tremendous turnover (given our business market) in 
personnel.  I am not sure if I will recover more than 20%, but I believe it 
will be close.

thanks again,

Mel

In other words, if you chose the third item in that list, the nearby cell would contain the number 3, if you chose the seventh item on the list, the nearby cell would contain the number 7, and so forth.

Table question
I have WinXP. I created a Table in WordPerfect (6.1) and then opened it up in Word (2003) so I could send it to some people who only have Word. In both instances (WP and Word), there is a blank page at the end that I don't know how to get rid of. Doing Delete on the last table page, or Backspace on the blank page, doesn't work because the cursor is inside the table at the end. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
