Dear Shamans, after used "Move-DatabasePath" in Exchange 2016 server, that DB was unable to mount and we saw 2 DBs folders (including edb files) in both OLD and NEW locations.

After I disabled the AV in server and mount that DB, it could be mounted . Command "Get-MailboxDatabase " showed that edb file of that DB was in NEW location  but there were still 2 edb files at the same time

What should we do? Can we delete that DB folder in OLD location? Many thanks!
