When new databases are created, SharePoint uses the default SQL Server location. This is typically the “C:\Program Files\MS SQL\Data” folder. Many organisations use RAID or SAN storage which may have different locations, e.g. “D:\Database”.

Within SharePoint you don’t have the option of specifying where the data and log files for the databases are created.

Using the instructions in following blog you can change this default location  for new databases. For existing database  you need to “DETACH” and “ATTACH” the data and log files.
