Moving Exchange log file exceeds quota SBS 2011, OS C: Drive full.
Posted on 2011-09-22
I purchased a new server that had two partitions. One for the OS at 120 GB and the remaining 800 gigs for the data. The problem is that we ran the move wizard for Exchange so that the database path was on the D: drive. That seemed to work fine. My problem is that it did not move the Log folder path and it is now filling up my OS partition. In Microsoft's wisdom, they hide this file so that it can not be seen even if you unhide system and hidden files. Found it using FolderSizes. Long story short figured I could use the wizard and simply change the c: at the beginning of the path where the log file resides and run the move wizard. I keep getting an exceeding Quota error after about 16 minutes. How can I move the log file to the data partition? I tried to simply reallocate another 50 gb from the data drive and add it to the OS partition but once I shrank the Volume, Disk Management would not allow me to Extend the OS(c:) Volume with the 50 GB I just freed up. Thanks in advance. New to Exchange so this may or may not be a simple task but spent many many hours getting to this point. Please help.
