I have Exchange 2007 running on a Windows Server 2003 R2 server for a small business with about 30 email accounts. The server has a 60 GB C: drive and a 600 GB D:. Both the "Mailbox Database" and the "Public Folder Database" are located on the D: drive. However, a mistake was made when the "First Storage Group" / "Second Storage Group" was created and the LOG file paths for those is using the default on the C: drive. We are now running out of disk space on the C: drive daily. Is it possible to simply create new Storage Groups with D: drive log file paths and then move my Mailbox / Public Folder databases to the new storage groups? Is this the approach you would take or is there a better solution to permanently fixing this problem?

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

If performance is what you’re after, and assuming two storage groups, I’d add E: and F: on separate spindles and move each set of trans logs to those drives. See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/821915
