Recovery Storage Group drive missing

Hi All,

I have an exchange 2003 server that has a First and a Recovery storage group configured. We have never used the Recovery storage group, and we would like to start using it now for test restores of mailboxes. When the server was setup it had an extra RAID volume which is no longer there anymore, and that is where the RSG is setup (Database, transaction log path etc)

The options to change these paths are grayed out, is it ok to delete the RSG and create a new one in a different path. Is there anything to do except right click and delete in Exchange system management?

Thanks

Just delete the RSG and create a new one. The RSG shouldn't be left in place anyway, it should be created on demand, and when finished with removed.
