increase disk size for exchange database

I am running out of disk space on the drive (drive E:) where the Exchange database is installed. What I am planning on doing is to install a new external SCSI drive array to the server and have it setup as drive Z:. Then I was going to shut down the Exchange services, copy all the data on the current drive E: to Z:, then once that is done, change the partition drive letters so that drive Z: (the new larger one with the copied data, including Exchange DB) is now the new drive E:. If I start up the Exchange services, will this work?

You don't have to go through all that. Changing the location of the Exchange database is fairly easy.

Here is the Microsoft guide for doing it in Exchange 2003:
