Hi Experts,

I'm after some information about migrating exchange databases. I don't want to change the path of the database, just add a new drive, copy the data to it and then swap the drive letters

Am i correct in saying that i can suspend the DB copy, and then do the above without much cause for concern, then re-start replication? Or are there other things to consider here?

isn't that for changing the path entirely?

Cheers Satya,

So pretty much the best way would be to remove the server from the DAG, move the files to the other drive and then re-add it
