Move Exchange 2003 Database/Files

Single server environment running SBS2003 with exchange. The previous admin of this server set the C:\ too small to handle the amount of email data the company receives... needless to say there is only 900MB left of free space. We have a D:\ partition on the same disk that has 200GB of free space.

My Question: How can I move our exchange database/files over to the D:\ partition? Can it be done without repercussions?

The stores will be dismounted during the process, but there are no repercussions from doing so.

I would recommend using the SBS approved method. See page 16 in the following document:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/1/6/11671e4d-fb21-489c-870f-db36fd21a7d2/SBS_MoveDataFolders.DOC
The document also gives you instructions for moving additional folders to create more space on the system partition.

The SBS specific way if doing this is the exact process linked to in the Microsoft link posted by alanhardisty and the reference document tells you to go to that link for instructions.

SBS2008 has different methods and there are wizards in the console to do this.
