I know there is a lot of information on the net about this, but it's conflicting and I trust the answers I have gotten here.

We have an Exchange 2007 Server. When the previous tech was here he put the mailbox store on the C: drive. It should be on the F: drive. I want to move it. Can someone tell me the steps/process and how it will affect the users?

Thanks experts!

Your users will be disconnected (Offline) from the DataBases while they are moving from one drive to another, after the movement is done everything will be ok

Here the procedure in order to change the Databa Path:

Open the Exchange Management Console, Expand Server Configuration and click on Mailbox

In the Details pain click on your Exchange Server and in the lower area of "Database Management", expand the Storage Group, right click the desired DataBase and select "Move Database Path...", them click Browse, select the desired Folder on the desired Disk (In your case will be Disk F), click on Save and them click on Move (The system will move the files and will change the internal Exchange configuration to point to the new location)

By the way, maybe you are interested in moving your Exchange logs as well, in order to make it is follow the same process, but just making the click in the Storage Group that contains the DataBase
