Heres my issue:
I have a terminal server that houses about 30 users. They use Outlook express as their email client. Anyways we have some serious fragmentation issues with everyone's emails saved on the terminal server. The harddrive is 33GIG and it has 71% file fragmentation and 5%free space fragmentation. It has 18% free space. Anyways we have tried to defrag the hardrive with the Windows Utility but it skips everyone's email files because they are so large and fragmented.
Does anyone recommend a 3rd party piece of software than can rid the fragments?
I really don't want to move everyone's emails and telling people to delete all their emails is not an option. We want to implement a raid5 array but not untill the harddrive is free of most fragments.
What would be the implications of expanding the partition to a raid5 array with the current partition full of fragments? My guess is that wouldn't help anything. Any ideas or recommendation?
