  • Running out of disc space while in migration from Exch03 to 2010

    All,

    I'm in the middle of a migration from Exchange 2003 to 2010. Starting to move mailboxes this week but will take at least 3 weeks since I will need to do this off hours.
    I am in a bit of a pickle because I only have about 38GB left on my mailstore/transaction log drive. I just ran out of disc space at 6pm(thank god) and was able to recover about 1gb, rebooted and everything came back up. Starting BackupExec now and having a consultant remove some transaction logs becuase I fear it will run out of space again before backup is done.
    I think part of running out of space is becuase my last full backup is Friday night and don't do another backup Monday.(today) I guess over the weekend of testing and moving test mailbox around, it ate up my space late today.
    Anyways, what are my current options? I have VMware, so I can technically P2V this server and buy some time, or I can also enable 'Circular Logging" for the next 3 weeks while I move mailboxes over.
    What would you guys do in my situation?

    Thanks for any advice.
