Exchange 2010 move/reconfiguration

I'm wanting to reconfigure my current Exchange 2010 deployment, I feel that the original setup wasn't done properly. The original setup consisted of C: (600GB SAS RAID 1) this contains OS and E: (1.9TB SAS RAID 5 - 8x 300GB SAS) on this Exchange was installed along with any other application.

Ideally I would like to reconfigure everything to C: (600GB SAS RAID 1) OS and Exch install, E: (300GB SAS RAID 1) Exch Logs and F: (RAID 10 SAS with 6 drives?) for Exch EDB.

Is it possible to move and reconfigure without having to reinstall Exchange? If not, what is the best course of action to take?

Please explain.  Are you talking about storage configuration or Exchange configuration?

Storage configuration. I would have preferred to keep the installation location, log files and edb separate

I don't have additional hardware available, also no ready access to hyper v.

If there's no way of doing it I'll just keep it as is and replace the RAID 5 with RAID 10 and restore from an image.

You try is to stop all the exchange services n try to take an image n restore partition by partition as per your requirement.
FYI it is not a recommended approach because of exchange running on the OS.

We make use of StorageCraft ShadowProtect, makes backup and recover a breeze. It will restore the partition exactly as it was, same ID, MBR and whatever else.
