First Storage Group (out of 4) - Possible Corruption, would like to remove and re-add

We have a new Exchange server that we have started migrating users to (4 storage groups). Unfortunately the first has had problems and I believe it to be corrupt. I successfully migrated the active mailbox users off that group to another, and would like remove the First Storage group, destroy the data volume, re-create and re-add in Exchange.

he problem is when I try to do so in Exchange (whether it is that I try to delete the store or the storage group) it tells me that I am unable to do so (one that it still houses accounts the other that the store is not empty)?

You don't need to delete the whole SG. Just dismount the store(s) contained by this SG, then delete the 2 database files (EDB and STM) corresponding to the store you dismounted.
When mounting the store, the exchange server will pop a warning and create a fresh database.

I used this scenario in some cases and I hope will help you too.
