SBS 2011 move SharePoint wizard breaks SharePoint

After installing SBS 2011 you should always use the wizard to move the data files off the system drive elsewhere. I did this with the SharePoint data after patching the server, but later found SharePoint was broken.

After some hacking around I discovered that the crappy wizard had not changed the paths in the registry. I altered these manually, then restarted the server and all was well again.

Thanks Microsoft! Sloppy code!
