Exchange 2007 Storage Groups

Microsoft Exchange 2007
I have Exchange 2007 running on a server with a 60 GB C: drive and a 600 GB D: drive. The plan was to setup Exchange data on the D: drive, so both the Mailbox / Public Folders database were setup on this drive. However, the problem we're having is that the storage group LOG file path is still the default C: drive. We're now constantly running out of disk space on the C: drive. I'd like to create new storage groups with LOG file paths on the D: drive and then move my mailbox / public folders databases to those new storage groups, but I'm not sure if this is possible. I'd like to know if this is the right approach to fix this problem permanently or if there are any other suggestions. Thanks!

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

The best practice for exchange is to have your log files on a different drive or set of drive spindles (RAID array) than your data bases. You will need to install additional drives for your log files, preferably in a RAID configuration.
Once you have the drives installed, then you can change the log file location at any time. Go to the EMC, expand the server configuration and mailbox role. Right-click the storage group you want to move and choose “move storage group path” then browse to the location of where you want the logs moved to.
