From View or Change the Default Locations for Data and Log Files:
- In Object Explorer, right-click a server and click Properties.
In the left panel, click the Database settings page.
- In Database default locations, view the current default locations for new data files and new log files.
- To change a default location, enter a new default pathname in the Data or Log field, or click the browse button to find and select a pathname.
Moving system databases is a little more intense, and harder for some databases (like
master) than others (like
tempdb). I'd start here, and consider whether you really need to move
Move System Databases
I don't know that there's a supported way to move folders like
FTData, etc. If you find ways to move those that seem to work, I'm pretty confident they'll break at some point. So if the object is really to remove all traces of SQL Server from the installation drive, it will be much cleaner to backup your databases, uninstall SQL Server, and start over. If the object is just to keep
Data separate, I'd have to question the value in going through a lot of trouble for that.
