Exchange 2007 disk is full

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06

I have a Vmware server that runs Exchange 2007 with Sharepoint in a course environment.
The disk is 20GB and i know this is too small so i have 0 MB disk space left..

I have run Cleanmgr and deleted some logs in c:\windows\system32\logfiles but it i still have problems to free up more space.

I am new to Exchange and is there a way to run a cleanup on the mailboxes for the 10 users.
Any other tip on how to get more space ?

Could you not create and attach a second virtual disk and then move the databases/logs to the new drive?

PS:  Moving the page file to another drive is also a nice easy way to free up space on C:
