Open the System Manager.  Expand:

Administrative Groups -> {groupname} -> Servers -> {servername} -> First Storage Group

Right-click "Mailbox Store" and select "Properties"

Select the "Database" tab.

Here you can relocate the database and STM.  Click Browse to a new location where you want the database to be moved.  Note that it will unmount the database when moving, which means users will not be able to access mailboxes in this store during the move process.
