The M: drive (M for Mail) just has to be a throwback to the old
Microsoft Mail days.  Someone on the Exchange team got a little
nostalgic, perhaps?

> 3. Why the heck does most of the data reside on a single drive by

> 4. What's up with this "M" Drive?  I know it's a virtual drive, but
>    it's just such an odd way for storing data.  Especially when you
