How to move DB files to another drive


I'm running Exch. 2003 on windows 2003 server and just added a second hard 
drive and would like to move my log files to that drive.  Can someone tell 
me how to do that.

I remember in Exch. 5.5 there was a wizard to do that but I can't find it in 
Exch. 2003.  Thanks for your help.

Can I use Publisher 2003 Files in FrontPage?
I built a simple resume web site off-line in Microsoft Publisher 2003. It looks like many hosting sites are more ready to accept web sites created with FrontPage. Can I buy FrontPage and then open my Publisher 2003 created web file in it? If not, do I really have to start all over in FrontPage?

Move Exchange 5.5 from NT to a new domain
Hi I have to move an Exchange 5.5 server from an NT4 member server in an NT4 domain, to a Windows 2000 member server in a Windows 2003 domain. Upgrading to Exchange 2003 will only happen next year. The servers will have different names as will the domains, obviously. It is a small site with a single Exchange site/server. I would also prefer to change the service account name and password, although I can keep it the same in both sites for now. The amount of duplicate messages is large and therefore I would prefer not to use Exmerge. We have a staging server that I can use (or even two if it mu...

Can't delete items or move items in Outlook 2002

must use "Save As" after opening Word Perfect files
We have one user who, when he opens a WP doc, the document does not open with the document name (i.e. Sales.wpd), it opens as Document 1 (or 2, or 3, etc.). He can't just hit "Save" to save the document, the dialogue box comes up as "Save As". What could be causing this? It's only an issue with one user. No one else had this problem. Is the user opening the file from within Word or from an Explorer window (such as My Computer)? If the latter, then it would appear that the default action for .wpd files has been set to New rather than Open (althoug...

How to insert the date the file was last altered on PP slide
In slide master ... I know how to get the current date that the file is being printed to appear on the slides, but how do I get the date that the file was last altered (or saved) to appear on the slides? The current date I am printing the document is really irrelevant if you have the last saved/altered date. I am not a programmer, just a frequent user of PowerPoint. What version of PPT? The wrong information is readily available in the meta data for the file. The last update date is usually when it was last opened. The best way to get this would be to set up a save event ca...
