Antivirus exceptions after moving Exchange 2007 files on SBS 2008

When using the SBS Management Console to move Exchange files, it moves the mailbox and public folders stores. Much of the files, folders and file types that need to be excluded remain on the original drive (the system drive by default) so many of the exceptions shouldn't change. However, to make it easier after moving the Exchange files, I simply masked out the entire "Exchange Server" on the drive that I moved the Exchange data to. E.g.: "E:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\"

Not that I'm suggesting that this is the best way to handle things, but it seems to simplify the exclusion process without any unwanted side effects.
