Should be really easy. So I've moved a DB path using the wizard in EMC Exchange 2010 SP1. It created a new CatalogData folder in the new location, but left behind the old one. My inclination was to just delete it, since iirc it is just an search index. So do all I need to do is stop the exchange indexing and delete the folder?

also the old path hasn't seen any files modified since the move, so I'm not sure if it is even using them.

Exchange might be hanging on to the files still, so restarting the search service should be enough to release them so you can delete the files.
Also - Exchange 2010 SP1 is very old - no longer supported in fact. You need to upgrade to Exchange 2010 SP2 or preferably SP3.

Simon.
