created a 2nd mail store to transfer mailboxes to. upon completion 11 mailboxes did not tranfer successfully & have a duplicate thats smaller in the 2nd mailstore,  and the 1st mailstore now has no space left and there is 16gb of E0008xxx.log files. Every 10 minutes both mailstores dismount themselves  in the 1st mailstore.

Enable Circular logging and restart IS this will only leave 5-6 logs and work with it :) ...... wont use more of physical disk space

did as instructed but the logs are still there. can I just delete them - Can deleta any older than 2 hours

ok back to 12gb of space so now services can resume, but now what about the mailboxes that moved only partially and duplicated? - There is a Hofix for this issue but nothing to worry iof the new mailbox shows all data an dold one is some KB

after I complete the move to the new db I can also delete the priv1 edb & stm... Right? - Is that the first Mailbox Database ?

I would simply dismount the 1 Mailbox DB and then remove the DB files and mount blank ..... reason i mount blank is that it has the SA mailbox and thats needed for a lot of Exchange features to work
