The disk is full for database "First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (UNIMATRIX)". Attempting to unmount the database.

the disk that exchane is installed on has 14 gigs free.
i did notice though that it is installed on a fat32 partition.
Please help, mail has been down for 2 days now.

This is due to the fact that fat32 partitions have a maximum file size of 4GB. You will need to convert your partition to NTFS. You should be able to mount the database after you convert the partition.

Thanks it worked.

First i ran eseutil and that seemed to sort out the problem
but my mail server crashed again today.

i converted from fat32 to ntfs and everything is working fine now.

thanks again for the help
