Solution: Exchange 2007 wont start service transport Storage.

The problem listed here is similiar to the problem i had.
When i started the Microsoft Exchange Transport service, it put up with about 6x the an ESE 491 event stating the following:
edgetransport (1988) Transport Mail Database: An attempt to determine the minimum I/O block size for the volume “D:” containing “D:Program FilesExchange 2007TransportRolesdataQueue” failed with system error 5 (0x00000005): “Access is denied. “.  The operation will fail with error -1032 (0xfffffbf8).
After alot of intense googling i came across the following thread on TechNet:
So make sure you get the NTFS permissions right. I always remove ALL permissions on a disk and only leave administrators with full controll until i need something more loose. Exchange 2007 does not correct this for it’s own tree.
