A couple questions:
1. We had some issues with one of our storage groups and had to make a recovery group (not sure of the whole story. I just got back from vacation and its off to work). We are out of space on our drive that holds all the mailbox stores. We were in the process of creating a new exchange server and this fast forwarded our time table. I am in the process of moving all mailboxes from one of our mailbox stores on our third storage group to the new server. once i do this can i dismount the store and delete the stm and edb files? I need to the space. I wasn't sure where the pointer to the new server is kept, AD or the store?

2. Since i am installing a new server its probably time to upgrade our GS 6.0 to 7.0. does anyone have any major issues with GS 7.0 or is is stable enough to run? At the end of the day we will have around 250 mailboxes housed on the server in 3 storage groups.

1).  Once all mailboxes are off of the Storage group, it is safe to delete.

2).  I'll need to defer to the other experts for this question.

thank you for the help. I'm going to post the GS 7.0 question again in the AV section.
