I have an Exchange serve with a partitoned drive.  The c partition is too small and I want to move Exchange to the E partition.  I know in Exchange 5.5 there was an optimizer that would scan the drives and move the datatbases to the drive with the most space.  That is gone in Exchange 2003.
 I did find a KB article on Microsoft's website kb 821915 "how to move Exchange datbases and logs in 2003".  
Has anyone ever done this?  
Currently all user email is on another serve in pst files.  
The only data in Exchange that I need is a shred addressbook.  
The kb steps seem simple, should I expect problems if I move the datatbases/logs?
Email now is hosted by outside company and I am trying to prepare for in house hosting and I know I will need Exchange on the bigger partition.
 I am preparing to move users off pst files and have their mail stored in their Exchange mailbox.
