I have a server with C, D, E and F partition. Exchange is installed on D, Logs files on E and the DB on F. I tried offline defrag on one storage group on F. However, the defrag failed because the Temp file was created on the D where there is no enough space. How do I make the defrag to use the F partition where the database resides? Thank Tobi

set the temp directory to F using the /t switch.

Actually, you can defrag any partition of your hard disk drive. There might be another problem with you partitioning of your hard disk drive. Make sure that each drive are partitioned equally and formatted properly for you to defrag and use the device.
