you literally just right click on the database you want to move and select Move Database Path

Is the database part of a DAG? Or is it a brand new installation?

Are you backing it up?

If you right click on the database and select properties the status will be listed there.

i'm not sure what a DAG is, but this is the only server in the organisation and is a DC too.

i'm not yet backing it up and the status is mounted.

OK, that's a new one on me then.

Can you right click the database and select Dismount Database, then try the Move Database Path again.
