I am running Windows 2003 SBS w/ Exchange 2003. I have Exchange and Windows OS on Disk 0: C: and the mdbdata folder containing the Priv1.edb and Pub1.edb on Disk 1: E:. I need to replace Disk 1: with a larger drive. If I do a complete backup of Disk 1: and restore it the NEW drive do I need to run ESEUTIL or will this simple exchange of drives be all I need to do?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No, you don’t need to run eseutil after doing the move… however, I suggest you add the new drive first, get it formated and then move your edb and stm files over to the new drive using this Microsoft Article as a guide: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/821915

    Thanks for the response and article. The Server is a Proliant ML310 G4. It has 4 drives. 2 are 80 GB and 2 are 160GB. They are setup as RAID 1 SATA Array. There aren't any additional slots to add 2 more drives so I will have to backup the drive currently in use and then remove the 2 160GB drives. I'll put in 2 new 750GB drives and rebuild the Array. Once I do this I will use the backup and restore all the data in hopes that all works with no issues. I'll keep the same drive letter so any INI file pointing to a specific DB will still see it as if it were never touched. Does this sound right to you? Thanks again.
