BES DR on 2nd Server - ? Regarding Database Restore and Services to Bring Up

The hardware and OS (Windows 2003 R2 Standard SP2/MS Exchange 2003 SP2 Ent) are identical on both the primary and secondary BES server.

The differnece is the way the HDs are partitioned. On the primary site there are 3 partitions - 1 for the OS, 1 for the SQL logs, 1 for the SQL database. On the secondary site there is only 1 partition.

So I obviously can successfully backup the database from the primary server, but when I try to restore it to the secondary server it says it cannot create/find the path for the other 2 partitions.

I wanted to know what the most effective and easiest way would be to do this then to perform a disaster recovery testing of the BES server. Come time should I just stop the SQL services on the primary server and just copy the MDF/LDF files?
