I have exchange 2013 in my network and has 3 DB. I have configured 3 separate drives for each DB and one 200 GB drive for logs of all 3 DB. All drives have more than 100GB free space, and still I am getting error when running BPA. Attached the screenshot. What may be the reason. What is the min lowlogvolume free space requirement

100gb for the transaction log, and 30gb for all other logs. Exchange wants a lot of space and the current values cannot be changed - which means to keep the error clear you need to retain 100gb free space at all times.

It is in the formal system requirements documentation on TechNet.
However this blog posting elsewhere on TechNet is a little more friendly.
