    The process i very straight forward you just need to use the wizard (the second link pointed to by R--R)

    However make sure to pay attention, the database will be dismounted during all the move process and thus inaccessible by all users

    As R--R posted. just follow the KB article and it is really simple, BUT as always make sure you have a good backup first and it is good practice to use the same naming convention for the folder structure that you are moving it to :D
