The M: drive is only a virtual representation (through Windows Explorer) of
your mailbox store.
You should not be using it unless you explicitly have a purpose to and know
what you are doing with it.

The mapped drive M: It can be hidden by registry entry:

Did someone do this perhaps?  Is the server working well otherwise?

because the M drive is not there, i cant access the OWA : 
The path of publishing the OWA using IIS is in M 
drive...my whole office is not able to access OWA for the 
past three days. No one touched it. I just did a whole 
computer back up the day before. This could have caused 
the problem?

If your M:-drive is gone without any manual intervention from your
Administrators (by using the SUBST-command or Registry) it means that your
Information Store has not started. Go to the Services Tools and view all the
Microsoft Exchange items that should be starting automatically. A typical
symptom will also be that the System Attendant did not start. Try restarting
all.

In some cases when you install Antivirus software the startup of these
services may be affected, as well.

Check the event log just after restarting the SA and IS for clues.

This may be a statement of the obvious.....If your M Drive has 
disappeared....your stores may be dismounted while your information store 
service may still be running.  In Exchange System Manager check to see if 
you have a red down arrow on your stores.

I hope this helps

If you ran a file system backup against the M: drive you 
may have corrupted the information store. "Microsoft does 
not recommend or support backing up drive M with file-
level backup software. Microsoft does not support the 
restoration of drive M from any backup source." -Q271465.  
Have you tried rebooting?  What SP's do you have

I have an issue with this actually.  Microsoft recommends not touching the
virtual M: drive for anything whatsoever, in fact recommends removing the
drive letter mapping if not needed.  Yet the Outlook Web Access component
requires the mapping because IIS5 needs a file system mapping for the web
site.

Is there a way to remap the OWA web site to some other path that doesn't use
M:, such as using the \\.\backofficestorage\(etc...) path instead?  Or
perhaps some other, alternate directory for OWA to run?

The M:-drive is (as noted elsewhere) a virtual drive mapped to the
information store. It is true that IIS5 is using it but this M: can be
sustituted with '\\.\BackOfficeStorage' without the quotes. This is how it
is done in E2K3.

But then, that is not your real problem. Your information store is most
probably not mounting and a restore may be on the cards.

Inventory Integration and Purchasing Default U of M (2)
Hello everyone, I posted this message 2 weeks ago and only had one answer that did not really help me. So I am trying one more time. I am sure I am not the only one with this problem. I am having a problem with the integration of inventory information. I am on version 8 and try to import into Great Plains a list of items. Everything is importing very well except that I can't find where I map the Purchasing Default Unit of Measure. Is the title of the field different in Integration Manager or is it just not there? The problem it is causing me is that when I purchase an item for the...

Win7 backup error: Windows Backup skipped I:\ because it cannot be found on drive I:\
After expanding my O/S disk and thus deleting "Disk I" my windows 7 backup completes successfully but gives me the above error for the previously deleted Disk. More of an annoyance. I DID have a disk I on the first Backup file I did before the expansion and I have NOT tried to restore any files, etc yet. I am looking for a registry or ? change that can fix this and not necessarily a 'work-around.' My Computer, Device Manager, Win 7 Backup devices, etc do NOT show any "Disk I." available on the computer. All help is appreciated. Backup error: Window...

Missing folders after reformating hard drive
Had to reformat hard drive.Saved Identity file which included all my folders to floppy.Transfered back to Windows file after reformating and setting up outlook.Unable to access foldres transfered from floppy.Any ideas> if this is an Outlook problem, i have to assume that you're referring to a .pst file that you cannot access anymore. i'm not sure though as you must not have a very large one if you had it on a floppy disk (i've seen them in excess of 1GB). =P right click on your actual .pst and click on properties. if the "read only" check box is checked,...

Can M$ Money Deluxe 2006 be installed on more than one machine?
Can M$ Money Deluxe 2006 be installed on more than one machine? I'm going to go on the Rebate Easter Egg Hunt (that's when the rebates arrive in my mailbox I guess) this week and am wondering if I buy this software if I can install it on more than one machine, or does the EULA say OEM stuff like one machine only? Does it require Win XP, or can Win 98SE on a PII 350 Mhz machine run it too? Retail licenses allows a Desktop and a Laptop. Per Mny15EULA.TXT 1. USE RIGHTS. Installation and Use. If you comply with this agreement, you may, for each license you acquire: * Install and u...

Backup backs up my backup drive
When I backup using the System State option, my existing backup file on my external Seagate E drive is also backed up. Isn't this sort of redundant? How do I get the System State backup of just my computer and exclude the backup E drive?
