The M: is a virtual drive that represents the drive that Exchange was
installed onto, you cannot increase the size of the m:, forget the m:, do
not touch the m:

Are all of your mailboxes on the c:\, if they are probably the best thing to
do is to relocate the stores to the d:\, here is a link that should help you

Now, the other thing to look at, is are your transaction logs being purged,
if you look in the MDBDATA directory do you see a lot of 5MB files with a
.log extension, if you do, how are you backing up your stores, these should
be purged when you perform a good backup, heres another link:

Hope this helps
