You cannot move the mailboxes individually to another drive. You will have to move the entire database which holds the mailboxes to another drive.

thanks i did that and it succesfully worked.....  this line is freaking me out????

When you finish moving the databases, remount the databases manually.


what does remont databases manually means??   do i have to go to each mailbox and move them around???

please help

Hi

Usually they remount themselves - Open Exchange system Manager - Navigate to Server - Expand first storage group, and you'll see the stores as you did when you moved the locations earlier. If they are dismounted you'll see a red arrow on them. In that case right-click on the store and select mount store. If there isn't a red arrow on them they're already mounted - right-clicking will give you the option to dismount the store as you'll see (obviously don't dismount it!) as all should be fine,
