I am so torn on offline defrag. I realize it has its pitfalls and am somewhat scared to do it, but I could use the free space it would clear up for us. Is it better to just purchase a third party utility to do the job, use eseutil /d or just not do it at all?
I am planning on moving my DBs over to our new iSCSI SAN and would like to do some maintainence on our DBs 1st. I’d mainly like to shrink the size as much as possible to help streamline the move to the iSCSI LUNs.
