I am trying to move the First Storage Group to another drive and it continues to just sit at "validating the destination file paths" I've had to stop the services, and force close the management console in order for the screen to go away as if I hit cancel it will continue to do the same thing.  I'm letting it go right now and its at 55 min and counting... Any ideas?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I spoke to someone recently who had the same problem, they found it easier to create a new mail store in the new location and move the mailboxes then delete the old store

I have found in some cases that simply restarting the information store service will allow the process to complete successfully.
Do note that the percentage bar and move indications are not an indication of the task in time, but an indication of the steps. Therefore it is quite possible for 60% of the steps to have completed and there is still some time to go.
