I am running SBS 2003 and it is getting low on HD space, so I purchase a new server with 1 TB and 2003 Server as the OS.  I would like to move the Users Shared Folder to this machine.  I figure I can xcopy the files over, change the properties for the current users, but how do i let SBS know the new location?
If i add a new user after i move the Users Shared Folders,  I want SBS to create their user folder at the new location.
