$ExchangeServers = Get-ExchangeServer -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

Write-Progress -Activity "Databases" -status "Collecting Databases info"
$Databases = Get-mailboxdatabase | Select Name,LogFolderPath,ServerNAme | Sort-Object Name

$trupath = @()

$logserver = $_.Servername.ToString()
$trupath += $logpath -replace "C:\", "\\$logserver\c$"
