Hi,
Does anyone know the process to move the SQL Express databases off the default (system) volume as part of the Lync 2013 Standard Edition install process?  I would like to do this during the install phase, however if it needs to be done afterwards that would be fine.  I can't see a option to do this during installation.
I'm running Lync 2013, on a 2008R2 Windows Server

Thanks for your reply.  It was actually an option during setup after all.  As part of the SQL setup there is an advanced button, and in there an option to choose DB location.
