Finding Exchange Store SBS 2008

nometa asked
A pretty basic and stupid question, but for some reason I can't find an answer anywhere: how can I find where my Exchange Store is located?

A related followup: if I need to move the store to another drive, what steps should I follow?

Thanks EE!

In the EMC, expand Server Configuration. Select Mailbox in the left pane. Choose the SBS server name in the right pane. The stores & folder location shows in the bottom pane.

From the Exchange Management Console (EMC), locate the Storage Group you would like to move the log files for.  Either righ-click on the Storage group and choose "Move Storage Group" or left-click and choose "Move Storage Group..." from the Action pane.  This will open a wizard for you to select the new log and system file location.  It is similar to move the database files however you choose "Move Database Files..." after selecting the appropriate mailbox store. 
The simplest method would be to use the wizard in the sbs console..image below
