Exchange 2003 hard drive near capacity

I just realized that the primary hard drive that Exchange 2003 server is installed(on a Windows 2003 Server OS) is less than 1 GB from full capacity.  Can someone point me in the right direction for moving the information store to a new/bigger hard drive?  I'm hoping to move just the store if that is possible.  Any info will help.  Thanks

Hi wfmb,

Just check what is taking up the space.

Is it the store, is it the logs, or is it something else?

You can download a free version of treesize from here ->

Also, how big is your store?  There are problems moving large stores

Hope that helps,


As red is hinting at check your backups and make sure the backup of the information stores is completing sucessfully and purging the old transaction logs.

If you are running Exchange Enterprise Edition, you could create a new Store on the new drive where you have space and start moving  mailboxes accross to the new store.
