Every week without fail my W2K server using Exchange(sp3) has an event relating to Exchange which causes Exchange to write log files enmasse. Sadly the event logs have been overwritten. I expect this tradegy to occur again this Saturday. What is the best way to ensure I gather all data so I can find the solution. I have cleared all events and I run Veritas backup nightly(Monday to Friday) so my log files are minimal. I am keen to prepare properly so that when it occurs I can progress the correct data back to this forum and resolve, what else can I do to troubleshoot. Desperately pjs

You're scanning the M: drive with antivirus software, or backing up the M: drive. Verify your backup jobs, and double check the AV to make sure it's not scanning the M: drive.

Thank you for your comments, I have been away so forgive my late reply. If an M:\ drive has been scanned then is the database permanently corrupted or is it recoverable?? Thanks

it depends on what's happened.  Is it still crashing? Even if corrupted, it's still recoverable, unless it's so corrupted, that a defrag or repair cannot finish. This is not common, but it does happen. you won't know until you're at that point. Now, where are you right now with this issue?
