I have 2 volumes on Server 2012.  D: and E:

The D: Volume is 2tb in size and has all of the company files and folders on.  This volume was taken from a 2003 server and attached to a 2012 File server so the old File server could be decommissioned (All shares were retained).

The volume is rapidly running out of space but we are unable to increase the size of the volume as it has been configured as an MBR.  
We need to simply change the share path of the shares so they now point to the location on the F: which is a 9TB volume.  

I can not simply change this in the shares as it will not let me edit the folder path.  I tried to modify the share location in the registry but unfortunately no joy.  I am also using DFS.

Any Ideas?
