No, but it will also not solve your C drive problem. Drive M is a
virtual drive that via IFS mounts into your storage. Additionally, the
drive information shown on drive M reflect those of the drive the
storage is on. Removing drive M has no impact on storage capacity.
 
I suggest looking through your C drive and find the culprit in the first
place.

        I 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!

                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,
