comment MDT: choose specific partition to install Windows on
Thanks again, but this procedure will wipe the whole disk 0 and all partitions on it. I am considering to test another way: I will create several txt files for each possible partition (probably max. 4). The txt files will have code for DiskPart, each wiping and formatting that specific partition. Then create a Task Seq. for each and call them in the Format section like this: 1: diskpart /s "%scriptroot%\DiskPartOnlyPar1.txt" 2: diskpart /s "%scriptroot%\DiskPartOnlyPar2.txt" etc. This way I can choose a TS that correspond to the partition, I want to install to. I will give it a try.

comment MDT: choose specific partition to install Windows on
How does your solution collect the correct drive letter in the format stage? The correct drive in our case would be a partition on the primary disk, that either had Windows installed already, or was made available using a partition manager. I have tried to use a file explorer (from DaRT), rename the correct partition (i.e. "WinOS"), and then point to this name in the format stage and set the variable here as well to be ready for the installation stage. But it didn't work. We need this because some users have either data partition or dualboot on the primary disk.

comment Exchange 2007 - mailbox limits doesn't work
USACASD - I believe you're on to something. He sends using Outlook in cached mode, but is able to send through OWA! I won't be able to test IIS reset before earliest tomorrow monday. Followup question: resetting IIS will only affect OWA users right? Will they be logged out as well? It could maybe be fixed by just setting up his acount on Outlook again? (thus deleting .OST file and creating a new one) IrqJD - I will be able to check this tomorrow, but I assume we would have more users with the same problem if this was the case.

comment Exchange 2007 - mailbox limits doesn't work
If Outlook is the problem I wouldn't suspect a limit problem. Rather maybe some kind of sync. problem after the migration perhaps. Or just a bug of some kind?

comment Exchange 2007 - mailbox limits doesn't work
I'm almost certain that this issue isn't related to other limits. Test mails were within the limits when I tested from his Outlook. Now that you mention it, I did not find the automated warning/error mail that he should have received. When he sends he gets the mailbox cleanup wizard, which actually made things even worse, because he had setup auto-archive to delete expired messages, and thus lost some mails. Could this actually be an Outlook error rather than an Exchange limit/error?

comment Exchange 2007 - mailbox limits doesn't work
I'm not certain it's a limit issue. I did check the mailbox limits through EMS, and they were correct meaning they were set to the limits stated in my first post (actually higher now for testing purposes). I'm aware of the default 2 hours for cached mailbox information to be refreshed. I did not find any log entries concerning the specific mailbox in the event viewer. Which other logs would I need to check?
