  • Storage space

    Windows Server 2003 Stand Ed., two AD's. One domain
    Windows Server 2003 Stand Ed, with Exchange 2007 Standard Ed.

    My Storage groups are on one drive that is 300gigs, with 125 gigs of free space.

    My logs are on a seperate drive, again 300gigs.

    I have 4 Storage Groups (ex. 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th).

    so my general question is can I add a NAS or SAN device to my Exchange Server and move the first Storage group, since it is the largest group and continues to grow?

    Asking users to delete/archive e-mails is an ongoing battle that I will never win, even applying rules doesn't help. We migrated from Lotus Notes from another company into this new company and domain. So since they never had inboxes sizes they won't delete anything. I have users in my first storage group that have inboxes well over 5 gigs, so it's pretty tough to ask users across the country to monitor their inboxes.
    At this rate I will be under 100gigs on that one drive in a few months, so any help is appreciated, thanks.
