hy  first of all make full backup
you will need to go to Exchange System Manager and point the mailbox store  you want to move
and ummount it - in the properties -  database you will see the location of the edb and stm files
copy for original folder to the new location and change the location of  the database
after you did that just mount the store .
dont delete it from the original location bafore you get it working.
