On our Exchange 5.5 server the priv.edb file is over 50GB in size. The total
size of all the mailboxes is in the region of 20GB. I understood that the
.edb file needed to be de-fragmented as per the instructions at:
After running the eseutil command the priv.edb file only shrunk by around
600MB (it took around 24 hours to complete). Is my understanding correct
that it should have cleaned up the unused space in the database or is there
something else that I need to do in order to get the priv.edb file down to
its 'actual' filesize.
