Relocate SBS installation of Sharepoint and SBS Monitoring to alternate drive.

I am running an SBS 2003 server.
We had originally installed SBSMonitoring and Sharepoint to the D: drive.
We need to relocate all the following folders to a newly added E: drive.
D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$SBSMONITORING

D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$SHAREPOINT

I was able to use the following document ( to relocate the following files:


However I still need to move all the remaining folders and subfolders that include the logs and system databases such as master.mdf, etc.

Following this, D: will be destroyed.
Any thoughts/links/suggestions would be welcom.

Thanks in advance.

You aren't going to be able to move the program/OS files.  You will only be able to move database files, index files, and logs.

You would need to reinstall (not sure if that is possible in SBS) to install on the new drive.
