iam using exchange 2003 server and currently there is only 6gb free space in the c drive due to which we have to take the windows nt backup for exchange in order to maintain the space. now i have added additional two hard disks with raid 5 and created a new raid group and configured as new volume. the new volume space shows as 67gb. how can i move the exchange from c drive to e drive without any issues. kindly let me know the steps as i done have any test server to check. i need to do this on my production server.

hy  first of all make full backup
you will need to go to Exchange System Manager and point the mailbox store  you want to move
and ummount it - in the properties -  database you will see the location of the edb and stm files
copy for original folder to the new location and change the location of  the database
after you did that just mount the store .
dont delete it from the original location bafore you get it working.
