You cannot move the mailboxes individually to another drive. You will have to move the entire database which holds the mailboxes to another drive.

When you finish moving the databases, remount the databases manually.

Hi

Usually they remount themselves - Open Exchange system Manager - Navigate to Server - Expand first storage group, and you'll see the stores as you did when you moved the locations earlier. If they are dismounted you'll see a red arrow on them. In that case right-click on the store and select mount store. If there isn't a red arrow on them they're already mounted - right-clicking will give you the option to dismount the store as you'll see (obviously don't dismount it!) as all should be fine,
