I have spent alot of time researching the forum and have found many topics on moving datatbases. I am new to SQL and have a lot to learn. I need to move the databases from the default install directory on C: to a new data directory on drive D:. I am using MS SQL 2000 on Windows Server 2003. I basically need instructions from start to finish. I am new to SQL but not to the field of computers. Be gentile and thank you for your help and patience.
