    Do you have file leve anti-virus running? If do then stop this and exclude the EXCHSRVR folders.
    Does the file exist in the E:\exchsrvr\MDBDATA?
    If not, what happened to it? Did it get quarentined?

    Are you having problems accessing files on the E: drive?
    Could the E: drive have been assigned a different drive letter?

    You could restore from backup.

    Hey Exchange_Admin,

    I don't know if you noticed, but Darktide has two other threads open. I just answered the other one and don't want to step on what you're doing.  I think they are related, and will turn it over to you, if you want to help him.

    Let me know,

    Hi, Sorry about the extra thread thing... I freaked out after a little while:) hahahaha.......
    The file does exist under that folder...
    I can get to the file and folder using the service admin account....

    Hey, don't worry about it. This can be a very stressful situation.

    It doesn't matter to me, but too many cooks in the kitchen can spoil the soup.  If you know what I mean...

    Do you want to take this Exchange_Admin, or do you want me to?  I'm kinda bored tonight, since I'm not on the phones anymore.
