o you mean you want to move your datastore to a different drive?

If so then in the Exchange Management Console navigate to Server Configuration > Mailbox, right click on the Mailbox database you want to move and select Move Database Path and then follow the wizard to select the new location.

From the Exchange Management Console, expand Organization configuration and click on the Mailbox role.  Find the mailbox database you want to move and right click on it and select Move Database Path.  You may have to dismount the database before you are able to move it.
