    I have backed up everyones outlook by exporting to pst and checked that all
    info is complete by importing again to test pc - Just in case!

    I need to move the Priv1 files as they are now exceeding 15Gb and I am
    running out of room on C: - Can anyone advise on the best way to do this?

    I have already moved all logs some time ago.

    Thank You - Mark

    That's a lot of work - probably wasn't necessary, note. Also note that if
    you were to import everyone's PST file back into the database (or any
    Exchange database) they'd take up more room than the source mailbox did, as
    you've broken Single Instance Storage.

    However, many people like to do exmerge to PST on a regular or semi-regular
    basis as a form of mailbox-level backup. Your call. Just don't use this
    technique as your primary disaster recovery plan!

    If you don't have SP2 for E2003 installed,, you have a 16GB
    limit on each store....just thought I'd mention that as you mentioned 15GB.

  4. Properties dialog for the Store in Exchange System Manager, Database tab,
    click the Browse button and specify a new location. Exchange will move the
    database(s) for you.
