If the freespace on your Windows NT 4.0 DHCP server is decreasing, check to make sure that you do NOT have numerous DHCP transaction logs. Check the %SystemRoot%System32DCHP folder.If you have numerous files in the j500nnnn.log format, open a CMD prompt on the DHCP server and type:

CD %SYSTEMROOT%SYSTEM32DHCP
NET STOP DHCPSERVER
JETPACK DHCP.MDB TMP.MDB
for /f "Skip=1 Tokens=*" %a in ('dir j500????.log /b /o-n') do del /q %a
NET START DHCPSERVER

NOTE: Jetpack.exe will copy / compact the DHCP.MDB database into TMP.MDB, delete DHCP.MDB, and rename TMP.MDB to DHCP.MDB.
