    We ran out of space on the drive that was holding our First Storage Group. This First Storage Group contained one mailbox store and one public store. I have moved all the mailboxes to a different mailbox store on a different storage group. That has allowed me to save all the mailboxes fairly transparently. However, I’m not sure how to move the public store folders. Here is some background info as to why I am where I am now with this:

    The drive is a LUN on a SAN. After increasing the size of the LUN I ended up with an error when I used Diskpart, stating the filesystem could not be extended. My disk shows the extra 10GB in disk manager but continues to show the original size in My Computer. I used the Diskpart command EXTEND FILESYSTEM but that gave me an error as well. Because I now have a corrupted filesystem (I am receiving NTFS errors in the event viewer), I felt it was prudent to move the mailboxes to other mail stores on stable drives while I could. Now that they have been successfully moved, I want to move the storage group, including the mailbox store and the public folder store, contained within it, to a differnet drive and delete the messed up drive. I’m not sure how to go about doing this. Do I move the databases first (I have read the instructions for that) and then move the storage group SYSTEM PATH LOCATION? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanking you in advance,
