Can I enable Shadow Copies on our SBS partition that is storing the Exchange DB

We have a SBS 2008 server and have Shadow Copies enabled.
We have (2) partitions, c:\ and d:\. The exchange database resides on the d:\ drive and is currently running Shadow Copies at the default schedule. is this an issue?

Should already be enabled, but yes you can
Only a problem if you run out of space.

You can do this.  Better however to have Exchange on its own partition and not use shadow copies on that partition.  Not because shadow copies will mess up Exchange but because exchange databases are large and multiple shadow copies can fill up the available space.  If you can add a spare drive and direct them to that you could avoid this potential problem.
