I have SBS2011 and a small number of users each of whom have redirected folders (Desktop and My Documents) located on the C drive. The C drive is now getting full so I'd like to move the folders to the D drive as painlessly as possible.

Copy the data from C:\ to D:\ (Robocopy's Mirroring switch is probably the best way to accomplish this), and then remove the shared folder settings on C:\, then create a share on the new folder on the D:\drive and set it to use the same name and security settings.

Sorry to disagree.  But the correct way to do anything on a SBS server is use the wizard if there is one.

On the SBS console,  go to Backup and Storage - then Server Storage tab .

On the right side,  you should see "Move Redirected Folders"

Can this be done while the users are logged in?

No because you run the risk of users having things open and it will affect their profiles
Depending on how much they have, your server, etc.I would think about 20 -30 min but could be more
