Migrating Exchange Mailbox database physical location into new drive without changing names and minimal outage ?

People,

I'm using Exchange Server 2010 SP3 and one of my Exchange Mailbox Database drive is almost full with just 1 GB free disk space, Log files is on separate drive so not an issue here.

How to change the EDBFilepath from F:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\SiteOffice3 into H:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\SiteOffice3

My understanding is that I need to dismount the mailbox DB and then cut & paste the content of the old drive into the new drive (not just the .EDB file) ?

but not sure what other steps that I need to know to ensure I can mount it with no issue ?

Thanks,

ok, so I do not need to change the log settings right ?
I assume the downtime will only affect the mailbox under the migrated mailbox DB only ?
Is up to you if you want to move the logs. If you have enough space on the logs partition then I will not touch the logs.
That's right, only the mailboxes that reside under that database will be affected during the move process.
