I have a 70GB of hard disk with 40 and 30 GB partitions.The main server runs both small business server 2003 and exchanger server 2003 standard. The databases file, priv1.edb and stm are full with respect to the 16GB limit and users are not able to send mails but can receive both internal and external mails. The  mailbox was dismounted due to the limit.I downloaded and installed exchange sp2 and  which mounted it for me.  i wanted to edit the registry to increase the database limit but my systems don't have enough disk space. The drive c: has only 2GB free space

I want to move the database to a new harddrive and then edit the registry to increase the database size to 75GB since i have exchanger service pack 2 installed. Will this help? What is the best solution for this situation.

    it depends on cost.

    of course, moving your database to a different physical harddrive always going to work.
    and it is the quickest way to fix it as well! (provided you got 1 drive available)

    remember, it is best to put it on RAID5 or else you are at risk.
