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

You need to provide additional information. We would need to know your hardware configuration. Are you running any hardware RAID? How many hard drives are installed in the server? Did you do the SBS install? How did you determine that the drive with Exchange is failing? The more details you can provide the better it would be to provide you guidance.

    There is no RAID, now 3 drives installed on the server. Yes, I did the SBS install. The System Event log is showing disk errors on the failing drive.

    Does the OS see the 3 drives as independent, assigning them seperate drive letters? If so, how did you get the exchange on the drive that is failing? Please post the exact error message that you see in the event log. During the SBS install, the exchange is installed on the C drive by default, so we need additional information to determine what changes you made to your SBS install making it non-typical. What do you have installed on each individual drive? Do you have a drive that has enough space so you can move the exchange date and log files over to it? There are written procedures that you can follow to move the data and log files. Let us know

    Exchange was originally installed on the d: drive which is failing. We had two physical drives, each with its own drive letter, now we added a third drive (f:), onto which I moved the exchange transaction files and logs. But the original exchange program installation is on the problematic d: drive. Log File Directory: f:Program FilesExchsrvrNYCCSERVER.log Exchange Database: F:Program FilesExchsrvrMDBDATApriv1.edb Exchange Streaming Database: F:Program FilesExchsrvrMDBDATApriv1.stm The error message is as follows: Event Type: Error Event Source: Disk Event Category: None Event ID: 11 Date: 2/23/2009 Time: 3:06:41 PM User: N/A Computer: NYCCSERVER Description: The driver detected a controller error on DeviceHarddisk1.
