    Hi,

    We need to upgrade the Hard drive in our exchange 2003 server. The DBs are not held on this server but the logs are.

    I’ve got software that can clone the HD while it’s still running, but I’m concerned about the log files if I do this while exchange is running.

    Would this OK:

    Clone the HD, let exchange run as normal while cloning. Install the image to the new HD.

    Once the new HD is ready, dismount the stores, make a copy of the log file folder.
    insert the new HD, copy of the latest log file folder and then re-mount the store.

    Will this be okay? What would you recommend?

    Thanks for help, advice.
