Low disk space for Exch 2003

Posted on 2006-04-07
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2008-03-10
I am running low on C: drive but have plenty available on D:.  Which option is best, to find some optimizer tool to split Exchange over both drives, or to move the entire program to D:   Or should I try something like Partition Magic and shuffle some more space back from D: to C:
The LAST thing I want here is to end up with a dead exch svr, that would be a nitemare.  I am looking for the safest option maybe

Hope This helps

Hmm, so no-one is suggesting resizing the actual partitions.
OK, so I will look at the above two answers.....

frankly why take the risk, make sure you do regular backups to remove the log files and have the database on the d partiton.
