Moving exchange database on SBS 2011 as little space left on exchange drive
Posted on 2015-01-12
Please can any one help with below
Customer has little space left on exchange drive (only has exchange data on) and we need to move the database to another drive. I know how to do this which is via the SBS console but my 2 questions are
Do you need any space on current location to be able to perform the move?
How long will it roughly take to move 70GB Database?
Other option i thought off, was to create new database and move each mailbox to new location as this could be done online without any down time for company but as it SBS im not sure if this is right call. as all new users would be placed in original database location.
All ideas would be appreciated
