Moveing Sharepoint 2010 on sbs 2011


We are gearing up to create some sharepoint sites but would like to move everything to our largter E: drive. We understand that we can use the sbs 2011 move wizard.

Our question: If we use the wizard to move sharepoint as it currently exists to the larger E: drive, will all future web applications, subsequent sites and databases be located at the new location Or will we have to move each item after we create them.

that depends.
The location of the database is normally set in SQL server (default data dir) and I think the move wizzard is not updating this configuration, the wizzard will just move the existing content databases (sorry have currently no SBS to test).

I would suggest to review the SQL server configuration and configure the default database and log file directories.

Thanks Jeff.....thats great to hear. Not to doubt but is it possible for you to point me in the direction of some MS Docs that say it?

You are doubting.  The wizard moves the entire database.  Creating a new site doesn't create a new database, it is stored in the same one you moved with the wizard.

Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
