Moving Exchange 2013 MSExchangeHMHost Folder

On a customer's Exchange 2013 server, we created a new drive and created new mail databases on it.
All mailboxes including archive, public & system mailboxes were moved to the new databases.

The old database has been removed but we are looking to remove the disk that it was on. However, there is a folder on there with current logs >> D:\MonitoringDiagnosticLogs\MSExchangeHMHost

How do I go about moving this folder elsewhere so that the D:\ drive can be removed?

As the folder references HMHost, I am assuming it is related to the Health Manager. If I stop the Health Manager service, can I safely delete the folder & then remove the disk? What errors would occur if I did?

Many Thanks

You can delete those directories.

It is a bug in Exchange 2013 that I think has been fixed. The directories are created during the installation of Exchange 2013 ONLY if the D drive exists. If it doesn't exist, then they aren't created.

Nothing should stop you from deleting the directories.
