I'm tasked to rediesign our storage group and store structure in Exchange 2003.

Would I group the stores based on database size, number of users or the alphabet?

So far I just created 3 SG and 3 stores per SG. Each store is named alphabetically A-C, D-F, G-H exc.

I had another layout that names the stores by database size that makes each store equal in size example A-B, C, D, E-F, EXC.

What is the best way to do this?

storage groups share the same logs so you might want to think about that when you are desigining, put more active groups on better disks or biger  space. you also might want to consider single instance which is when an email is sent to a group, if they reside on the same database it will only need one copy of the email and point the users to it, so group users depending on the department or role in the company to save space
