i am trying to move my existing Public Folder store to new physical drive space.  it will remain on the same server, jsut a different drive letter and path.  my question is what is the best & safest way to do this?  can this be done simply by dismounting the store, changing the path in the store properties, re-mounting the store so that is is created in the new space and then dismounting again and dropping the original store in the new drive space, and then re-monuting the store and having all of the data intact?  much in the same way you could/would for mail stores?

i'm assigning 500 pts. becaues it is kinda urgent i get this squared-away soon!!!

thanks in advance.

and i apologize for any/all typos...i'm a horrible typist.

1.  Open Exchange system manager
2.  Navigate to the public folder store you want to move.
3.  Right click on the store => select properties
4.  Change to the Database tab
5.  Click the Browse button next to the database path and then select the new location you want it to live in.
6.  Click the apply button

The database will now move itself to the location you want for it.

leew,

remember that it is best practice to have the exchange MDB files on a different physical disk from the Log files.

I think this should have been a split.  Any reason it wasn't?
