If you are preparing to migrate Add2Exchange to a new location on the same server, here are the steps to manually make this process easier.


These instructions refer to the Add2Exchange service account as “zAdd2Exchange” since that is the recommended account name. This makes it possible to cut and paste many examples. If your service account name differs, substitute it instead.

FTP Site Link for A2Diags tools:  ftp://ftp.diditbetter.com/a2ediag

  3. The A2EDiags are included in the zipped file of the new downloads.  You can download and extract the A2EDiags Tools from the FTP site link provided
  4. Run A2EDiags.bat from the extracted or installed directory
  5. Detach the Add2Exchange database with the Detach Database option
  6. Uninstall Add2Exchange
  7. Reinstall and select the new drive
