View Full Version : Defrag on SBS2003 - exchange

HI All

Am I missing something basic here? I am getting drive write delay errors on an SBS2003 box. Checked out fragmentation on the C drive, at 27%, mostly for exchange files.

Turned off all exchange services overnight, ran defrag, but exchange files still fragmented...

It's one of those can't see the woods for the tree things, I am sure!

what defrag command are you running?

where are you seeing delay write errors?

are the backups happening successfully?

+1 for defraggler. Use to use windows defrag program, decided to see if it was really working. And was not completely defragging my drive.

This is on an array I take it? You sure you don't have a crook disk?

Use eseutil to defragment an exchange database.
