exchange 2010 db data and log Volume(recreated) removal of old?

Exchange 2010 using RAW disk direct LUn access on a SAN.  Several DBs, while DB6Data(M:) and DB6logs(mounted volume on M:) was corrupted months ago. At the time I worked through and created a new drive and worked with MS get things working off new SAN access and windows volume as DB6_Data(E:) and DB6_Logs(mounted volume on E:).  So months later now I need to delete that old volume and then the DS on the SAN, regaining the space.  I should have done this when it was fresh in my head, but...

Question is how do I make sure that nothing is updating that old drive M:  as far as the db and logs?  I just want/have to be absolutely certain I am not going to cause any issues with Exchange production env.  

Thx

Get-MailboxDatabase does shows the log file location as well
I dont think SQL is part of Exchange 2010

Check your currently database and log files point to which drive. If it's pointing to M drive then you will be safely delete the M drive database and logs files.

Sorry it's typing mistake..

Check your currently database and log files point to which drive. If exchange database and logs files pointing to E drive then you will be safely delete the M drive database and logs files.

If there was would have come up as a Event or some other way to you ....

I would however recomment you to check with EXBPA
Also check the DB and Log location for the rest of the DB through Shell

Rancy can you expand on the exchange shell commands to use and use of EXBPA if not already available on the server and route to check with that tool once I gain access to it.  Thx

the EMS get-mailbox shows me the path for the new location of the DB  "eDbFilePath" line.  But is there something that will show/confirm the ldf log file path.  Is there a buil in SQL manager for exchange 2010 when intsalled 2008 server? Ive never seen one.
