exchange defragment stuck or frozen

I needed to defragment an Exchange 2000 mailbox store tonight because it had reached the 16GB limit. I started the process, let it run to about 5%, then walked away for about an hour. I came back, and it hadn't moved. I thought, "how long does it take to defragment the mailbox store??". I checked the temp files that the defragmenter was generating and noticed they hadn't been modified in an hour. Long story short: for some reason, clicking the mouse in the command window where the defragmenter is running will cause it to pause, and you can restart it by hitting F5.

Thanks to the following link for the F5 info:

CS-Cart images not displayed after server move / mysqldump

if you are using CS-Cart and you've copied the database using a mysqldump ,the binary data for the images may not have been migrated properly. You need to make sure to use the --hex-blob switch when dumping the database. More information on the --hex-blob switch can be found here

ExpressionEngine flv upload file type not allowed

To allow FLV files to be uploaded in ExpressionEngine without getting the file type not allowed message, add the following to /system/lib/mimes.php in the $mimes array:

'flv' => 'video/x-flv'

So, the end of your $mimes array will end up looking like:

'aif' => 'audio/x-aiff',
'aac' => 'audio/aac',
'flv' => 'video/x-flv'
