NachrichtI guess my question should be - will removing the M drive give me 
anymore drive space than what I have available now?  I moved mailboxes 
totalling 1gb of data but instead of gaining any drive space on C - I lost 
space.  The mailboxes were moved to a new storage group on a new drive and all 
of the databases have been moved to the new drive.

Removing the M drive (using Microsoft's script) will not cause any lost data 
for the users?

Thanks for everything so far!

Tyler

  Also check the mailroot directory and delete any unwanted messages in case 
the machine has been used as an open relay (which tends to fill up drive space 
as well).

    Try to perform a full Exchange backup using the native ntbackup that comes 
with Win 2k.

      M: is a virtual drive, so ignore it.  Better still, search the MSKB for 
the script that removes the M: mapping.

      I have a new customer running Win2K server and Exchange 2000 ( only 1 
      server in the company).  Their C drive is out of space hence the 
      Exchange IFS Drive M is also out of space.  I have moved the Exchange 
      database locations, created a new storage group on a new drive and moved 
      several users with the largest mailboxes to the new Storage Group.  Can I 
move
      the physical location of Drive M?

      However, drive M is still out of space as well as drive C.

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks in advance,
      Tyler Bowen
