Public Folder Store DB Relocation

Hello,

Our Exchange 2K server has it's mailbox store DBs on a separate drive (let's call it I:).
Unfortunately, the Public Folder Store specifies c: as the location of it's DB.  Well, our C: drive is getting a bit low in space and I need to relocate this DB to the I: drive.  Is it as simple as stopping the services, moving the .edb and .stm files, then pointing the Public Folder Store DB tab to the new location?

Thanks,
Florence

As far as I recall, yes it is. You don't even need to stop the service, you can just unmount that store.

I did something similar recently when a drive failed.

Hi florence_delsole,

I would be more inclined to do it the MS way,

The only difference is that you do it through ESM, not by manually moving the files (which should also work, but still)

It is much easier to find it when you have read it a few hundred times :)

You can then search for words or better yet phrases you remember reading in it

Thanks
