Move SharePoint Services Data wizzard fails on SBS 2008

Tried to run the "Move SharePoint Services Data" from drive C: to D: but it failed.  When I launch the wizard again, it says the data is now on drive D:

Drive space for C: has not changed.

C:\Windows\SYSMSI\SSEE\MSSQL.2005\MSSQL\Data still has 25 Sharepoint files.
D:\Windows\SYSMSI\SSEE\MSSQL.2005\MSSQL\DATA was created, but only has 8 files.

How can I move the data to drive D?
