Need to move Mailboxes to another drive.

I'm running SBS 2008 and Exchange 2007. My client mailboxes are full and I need to move to another drive. I have a 1 terabyte drive partitioned into a c: and d: drive with plenty of space on d:. How do I move the mailboxes to the larger drive?

Right click on the database and select "Move database path" and on the next window click "Browse" and selct the new drive...
There could be a downtime though...
You can either move the Mailboxes or Move the Database to another Drive.
I would suggest to move the Mailboxes as it would affect only the users who's mailboxes we are moving rather than moving the entire Database.
You can create a New Database Pointing to the D Drive. Then from the Recipient Configuration -> Choose Mailbox.
Select the User whom you want to move and Right Click and Move Mailbox.
Choose the Destination Database to be the New Database that you created.

When I move the mailbox to another drive, will the permissions move with the mailboxes?

If this is SBS 2008 not server standard, you should not use the typical Exchange 2007 methods. This should be done using the built-in SBS tools which is easly done by opening the Windows SBS console, click on the "backup and server storage" tab, then the "server storage" tab, finaly on the right hand menu choose   "move Exchange Server data".
