1. Do a full backup of the information store (online is fine)
2. Take the server down and install the new drive
3. Partition and format the new drive (ntfs of course)
4. Use the exchange peformance optimizer to move the files

I have a problem with my exchange server (v 5.5). The
server is quite old now and only has 2GB hard drive (which
has winnt files exchange server and our fax program
running off it). When the drive drops under 10MB of space
the MTA fails. So far I have kept things rolling by
regularly deleting archives, logs and temp files.
I have added a larger hard drive to run exchange server
and other programs. Can you tell me how I go about moving
the exchange server from one drive to another?
