Hello EE. I am trying to move an Exchange Database and Logs to a different drive. When I first installed it I thought I had specified the drive I had wanted but it installed on the system drive so I am running low on space. I used EMC to move the Database but it fails. I was able to move the public folders database ok but not the main one. I am trying to back it up as suggested by another post. I am using Windows server backup and running it for the first time but it runs soooooo slow. I was wondering if there is anyway to speed that up. I am backing up V14 folder in exchnge.

Easiest, least disruptive way is to create a new storage group where you Want it and just move the mailboxes

As said by lee, would be the best option with out any outage.Moving the database would require an outage.
Also when moving mailboxes enable circular logging.
