SBS 2011 Move Exchange Server Data Error: The .edb file path is not available.

I'm trying to move our exchange databases to a different partition using the wizard in the SBS 2011 console.  I'm trying to move the databases to a newly formatted partition with no existing data on it.  The move is unsuccessful with the error: "The .edb file path is not available. There is already a file named 'E:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Mailbox Database\Mailbox Database.edb' in the file system on server".  The partition I'm trying to move the data to is the "E:" partition, and after the process fails, the "E:" partition does have the .edb file the error is referring to.  So, it appears as though the data is being moved, but then there is confusion as to why it's in the new location.  Any ideas?

It must have just been a random error.
