You do not have to do anything with the M:, never touch the M:, never backup
the M:, make sure your virus scanning software is configured NOT to scan the

The three errors you see in IIS are normal, and relate to the order in which
the services start in IIS and can be safely ignored, to test that they are
working OK, go into Services and Stop and Restart the WWW Service and the
errors should disappear, they will however return when you reboot the server
but like I said they do not cause a problem.

  Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2000 Moving databases - slight issues or
large problems?

  Hi All

  I have followed the acticle on and moved my databases to
where I want them.

  This has caused a few issues which may or may not be actual problems.

  1) I have an m: drive which exchange created when it was installed. Do I
need to do anything with this drive now I have moved the databases??

  2) I now have 3 virtual directories in IIS with error can not find path.
They are the exchange sites.

  Public    M:\\Public Folders
  Exchange    M:\
  Exadmin      \\.\BackOfficeStorage

  Many thanks for all your help.
