Moving MTAData Folder

We have recently upgraded our Exchange 5.5 server to Exchange 2000.

Our HD was split into two partitions and was optimised to have the mdbdata\dsadata\mtadata etc folders on the 'D' drive and the other exchange files on the 'C' drive.  As I need to adjust the sizes and improve the system, I am intending to install a new HD and move the mdbdata files to this drive, delete the 'D' partition and then extend the 'C' partition to use the entire HD.  I know how to move the mdbdata files (.edb's and .stm's) using the Exchange System Manager, but am not sure how to move the mtadata folder.  I notice that I also have an mtadata folder on the 'C' drive as well.  Both mtadata folders appear to have active files, eg, they both contain various files with today's date.

Can someone please advise me on the correct course of action.

Regards

Ian

Thanks bburke2284, for your comment, however, the article in question relates solely to the storage databases and the transaction logs.

I wanting to rationalise the MTA run and database directories.  I have already followed the article I have indicated in my comment above and have resolved the issue involved.

Thanks again for your comment though.
