Hello experts,

I am installing a fresh copy of Exchange 2010 on a new server.

After install finishes, I want the main storage drive for mailboxes to be D instead of C.

How to do so?

When you install Exchange, it will ask you where you would like to store the mailbox databases.  Simply browse to the correct location when it asks and you'll be all set.  If you forget, you can always move the mailbox location later from the Exchange Management Console.
