Closing a recovery storage group - SBS 2003/Exchange 2003

We have recently inherited a SBS 2003 (Exchange 2003) client - looking through the Exchange System Manager we have discovered that there is a Recovery Storage Group set-up which looks as though this has been left from a recovery some time ago?

Ideally I would like to close this down, and remove it - however, I'd appreciate some guidance as to the appropriate steps to take before removing this - presently it is un-mounted.

Just remove it. Nothing special has to be done because you cannot "use" it for anything other than a recovery.

If you run the Exchange best practises tool against the server it will detect the RSG, suggest removing it and should give you a link to the official Microsoft page on removing it.

As it's a recovery storage group, I would make sure I have the correct permissions ("Exchange Full Administrator") and simply right-click the Recovery Storage Group and select Delete. You shouldn't need to perform any other steps.
