If you have the option, add an extra drive with more space and create a
large partition on it. With all Exchange services stopped, copy the contents
of M: to your new partition. Now use Disk administrator to set the drive
letter of the new partition to M: and restart your exchange services. I've
used this technique with exchange 5.5 and MSSQL7 with great success.

Subject: [windows2000] M Drive full

For some reason the M drive on our Exchange2000 server is completely full.
We are doing backups which are set to flush the logs.  I have asked all
users to delete anything they can to clean up.  
The application log is full of these error messages:

Microsoft Exchange System Attendant failed to read the membership of group
'cn=Exchange Domain Servers,cn=Users,dc=MyDomain,dc=lan'. Error code
'80072030'. Please check whether the local computer is a member of the
group. If it is not, stop all the Microsoft Exchange services, add the local
computer into the group manually and restart all the services. 

The MAPI call 'OpenMsgStore' failed with the following error: 

The attempt to log on to the Microsoft Exchange Server computer has failed.
The MAPI provider failed. Microsoft Exchange Server Information Store ID no:


I believe that if I can somehow get the M drive cleaned up then these errors
will go away.

Any ideas?    TIA.
