OK, so i should just move the back up files (first & second stores.bkf) to the other drive and redirect the backup to be save at that location...correct?....not sure if you are following what I'm saying here!

You are correct, jmb1. All you need to do for the existing .BKF files is manually move them to a different location. To redirect the backup job to the new location, you need to open the NTBackup application, open the backup job that is schedule to run to back up Exchange, and edit the location for the backup files so that it points to your new location. You don't need to change the schedule or any of the other settings, just the file location.

Sorry for the delay in responding - busy day yesterday! If you have not figured it out, the backup location is specified at the bottom of the NTBackup window - see attached screen capture. Also, don't forget to SAVE the job again after you make the change so that it will stick. How to change the file location for the backup

Just to clarify, as you can see from the screen capture, I'm doing this from the NTBackup graphic interface itself, not editing the job in the Scheduler. You can edit the job in the scheduler also by editing the command line. You want to change the "/f" parameter. As an example:

/f "D:\backup.bkf"
