The environment is: Windows 2008 R2 running Exchange 2010.
Disk 1: Full size: 3719.99 GB
C: Drive Volume: 2047.90 GB and 100MB System Reserved
The remaining space is unallocated.
Windows Backup is failing because I can't do a full server backup. It says volume larger than _____ can not be protected.
I am thinking about shrinking the C: drive (because only 300 GB is used rest is free) and bring it down to below 2TB.
1. Would that work to fix the backup issue?
2. Would Exchange 2010 have any problem with shrinking C: drive volume?
3. What is the proper method, should I shut down exchange services and then shrink?
