How to Move MySQL D/B Files (Windows)

Locate your MySQL installation files and central configuration file

basedir="C:/Program Files/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.1/"
Your MySQL configuration is stored in "my.ini" file

Locate your MySQL Database location:

datadir="C:/Documents and Settings/All Users/
Application Data/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.1/Data/"

Stop MySQL service.

Modify My.ini file to point to a new D/B location and Save.

Move your Data directory to a new location

Restart MySQL service.

You are done.  All pages (even if you were in the middle of the editing) continue to work.  Amazing!
