Moving public folder files

Hi all:

I need to know what is the best way to move the pub.edb and pub.stm files (2,10 GB) to another disk on the same server.

Thanks in advance.

2.10 Gb, but are you sure this is the best way? For example, permissions remain configured as before?

When u r moving the files from the above method , make sure that the public folder stores are dismounted first other wise it will give error while doing the above task . Take a look at the below article for detailed process .

It would help if you identified which version of Exchange this was.

For Exchange 2003, follow this process: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=821915
As long as you follow that guide all permissions etc will come across.

However you will have downtime while it is moved, as the store is dismounted to be moved.

The process which I specified above will give you notification and it will automatically dismount the public folder store.

And there will be no change in permissions.
