SBS 2003 & Exchange - Need to move Mailboxes to a new drive

I have a SBS 2003 Server w/ Exchange.  The system is decent with a 120GB mirrored harddrives.  I did divide the drives up when I setup the system not thinking about the size Exchange could get.  I gave the OS a 12GB partition, a 6GB for web sites and the rest for public shared inter-office data.  Since I never hosted our web site internally, I want to use the partition for the web sites for the exchange mailboxes as they have consumed most of the operating system partition.

How do I move the files?  Do I just cut & paste the files (priv1.xxx and such) to the new partition and change the store location in the Exchange properties?  Is there a utility?  I'm really scared to touch be deleting anything...

Points to rakeshmiglani, but here's another link - it's really easy... just make sure you let it run - if your stores are large it COULD take time moving them and as I recall, there was no progress bar to indicate how much of the file(s) were transferred.
