How to move the location of a mailbox database in Exchange 2013

We firstly query Exchange via the EMS to list all available databases:
Once you have identified the database, we can double check the current mailbox location on the file system:
Get-MailboxDatabase -Identity "Mailbox Database 000001" | Format-List | Select-String -Patern "EdbFilePath" -SimpleMatch
We then dismount the database:
Dismount-Database "Mailbox Database 000001"
Then we use the "Move-DatabasePath" cmdlet to move the location on:
Move-DatabasePath "Mailbox Database 000001" -EdbFilePath "D:\Mailbox Database 000001\Mailbox Database 000001.edb" -LogFolderPath "D:\Mailbox Database 000001\"
