Rain water in trunk

Performed 2 searches for info on locating source of water leaks into trunk. Found some "interesting" threads but after reading 7 pages of post returns on each search I am now starting a new post.

'01 325 convertible with factory hardtop. Hardtop has been installed since Sept. as we do get a little rain here in the Northwet. Smelled mildew, opened trunk and determined trunk as source of smell. Removed trunk contents, the carpet on the floor felt a little moist (I think), and removed spare to find an inch of water below the spare tire. Car is garaged when home but parked outside during 12 hour night shifts. After drying out the area where the spare goes water returned after a rainy night parked outside at the hospital.

Removed hard top and put up soft top. Soft top is fine, no visible signs or smell of mildew, for which I'm thankful. I have not parked the car outside in the rain since I put the soft top up.
