Got a question regarding the installation of a new SQL Server instance. Up until now, what I've been doing is, running the installation like normal, then using ALTER DATABASE to move the data and log files for model, tempdb, and msdb to a different folder. I use a folder structure similar to \MSSQL\Data for the data files, and \MSSQL\Log for the log files.
I recently learned that you can alter the installation folder so as to save a few steps. However, it seems as though this installs the *entire* MSSQL folder to that drive, and not just the data and log files.
Is there any way to facilitate this work, or do I have to go with the original option?
