I am creating mount points for exchange DBs in server 2019. All the mount points are shown as folder shortcuts. But on one of my existing servers, the mount points show as short cut disk icon. What is the difference here? Am I doing anything wrong when creating mount point? by the way, all the disks are GPT partitioned

    Hi there,

    Make sure when you are creating a mount point, you need to create the mount point folder from the ‘New Simple Volume Wizard’ in disk management of your windows server, once created, do another quick format again after the first quick format during the wizard creation.

    Below threads discusses the same issue and you can try out some troubleshooting steps from this and see if that helps you to sort the Issue.
