I am almost positive I am using the correct procedure to move the master database
I am able to move it deeper in the file directory location where it currently is just to make the procedure work. What I can't do is get the service to start after I move the master.mdf file and ldf files to a location outside of the current folder. I can make this work in subfolders of the current folder.
in the security properties of the folder that works I see a user MSSQLSERVER that has full rights to the default folder.
in the folder I am trying to move the master.mdf, I do not see MSSQLSERVER. I also can not add it. Can someone explain how to correct this. I am almost positive this is the problem
