Exchange 2007 SP2 move the queue logs to a drive with more space

We have 1 Exchange Server 2007 on SP2. The 1st storage group for the maibox database and 2nd storage group for the public folders database.

last week i tried creating a public folder and then moving data from a large pst file into it. This caused major issues on the server. It was to do wtih the queue logs which currently are at the default location C:/Program Files/Microsoft/Exchange Server/Transport Roles/Data/Queue. The C drive has hardly any disc space left and i know Exchange needs at least 4gb free.

I would like to move the queue logs to the D drive which has more space. Am i correct in saying i just edit the EdgeTransport.exe.config file at C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Bin and change the queuedatabasepath. Then restart the Microsoft Transport Service? Wihtout causing any loss of sending/receiving email.

I can then create a public folder and move the data into it without crashing the server.

Please advise
Thank you

You can use shell and move the queue database easily with a simple script

Move-TransportDatabase.ps1 -QueueDatabasePath: <destination path>

And restart Transport service
