I have read all of the threads on moving the exchange db's, It looks pretty straight forward I have only twoquestions.  Do I have to turn off the exchange services before moving the db's, and also do I move both the database and the streaming database at the same time or separately?

Thanks,
Jaime

Do them separately, but one after the other. Don't stop anything - Exchange does everything for you.

I'm thinking of moving over only the public store db's, for now and moving the private stores and another time, would this cause any problems?

Nope. As long as you move both parts of the store you can have public and private stores in different locations. On very high traffic servers I do this as a matter of course.

It is a downtime job, whether you are moving public or private stores. Outlook uses the public folder store to hold information - free/busy is the major one, so you will have to schedule the time.
