We are running Microsoft SBS 2008 virtualized on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V. The disk drive on which the SBS VHD resides is out of space and there is no room to expand it. I have another drive that is empty. How do I move the VHD to the new drive?
Thank you.

Shut down the server, move the VHD, then change where the file is located in hyper V manager then start the server. Hope  this helps :)
