Relocating Notes data to a new drive

Current Domino R5.08 is running out memory, which is located at D:\LotusNotesData on NT server. Also this NT server has an F drive that holds 38 GB. I need to relocate the Notes data from D: to F: but I don't know how. Is there anyway I can switch the driver? Please help.

This is fairly simple. Shut down the Domino service (after a fully successful backup) and move the data files from one drive to the other. Maintain the same directory structure. After that, modify the necessary notes.ini entries to reflect the drive change. You can leave the program files on the other drive. They don't have to move. If you want to move them, I would suggest uninstalling Domino and then reinstalling to fix the registry entries.
