Exchange server 2010 installation

I am installing a new 2010 exchange server, I have the server installed and the SSL certificates installed, and am ready to migrate the mailboxes from the old mail server but have not done so. I must have been asleep when I did the install I should have installed it on a different drive. What would be the problem of uninstalling the program and re-installing it. Or would I be better of just moving the mail boxes and public folders to the new drive. Are there any connections to the old server I should be concerned about?

Hello,

You can easily move the database and log files to another drive using the move-databasepath cmdlet - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124742.aspx

I already moved it I was just wondering before I migrated the mailboxes weather I should uninstall and re-install the exchange server. Just looking for some recommendations so I can make a decision.

Personally I always install Exchange on to the C drive and then move the databases and logs off that drive in to their own. If you want reinstall Exchange then you will have to undo all of your work, and remove arbitration mailboxes etc. If it is in the default location, then leave it there.
