Greetings;
I just inherted an Exchange Server and having said that I already ran into a problem (the other day the server shut down due to NO space on c:\drive). The Exchange LOG file is created on the C:\drive which has limited space. Can I point this file to the D:\drive instead? If not what are my options (ie; exchange v5.5 running on its own box / NT 4.0).

yes.  run the Optimizer and change the path.  to stop the Exchange log from growing, you'll have to enable circular logging.  However, when you enable this setting, you cannot backup your Exchange server differentially or incrementally - oply full backup.

What happens if I run the Optimizer and then install a new backup system. Will I then be able to run the different backup combinations?
