Shrinking the Size of Exchange Drive

For whatever reason you have you decided to shrink the size of the Exchange drive while in production.

Platform: Exchange 2010, Windows 2008 R2

Goal: Shrink the Exchange binaries , DB and Log drive size

results: Success on the fly no issues at all


Fallow the steps, log into Exchange server and go to Disk management , locate the drive you wish to shrink






As you can see we did this on production Exchange server while users connected (-: , I am sure you will avoid doing that and scheduled off hours as good practice…. and use GUI to get the work done, result is hundred percent success with no issues
