Move indexes from one drive to another on the same server.

Hi,

I know there are many articles published for this topic. Just needed to check on one query that i have regarding this activity.

Do we really need to run this last command and what will it actually do in the background.

If i dont run this command is there any issue that will occur or will my index locations still be updated correctly and will users face any issues? 

-- Inform EV that it needs to update the paths of the volumes on service startup 

UPDATE IndexingServiceEntry
SET IVSyncNeeded = 2
WHERE ServiceEntryId = (SELECT IndexServiceEntryId FROM IndexRootPathEntry WHERE IndexRootPathEntryId = @IndexRootPathEntryId)

I'm not sure what version of EV you have, but if on EV 11 you could use the "Change location" option in the Manage Indexes wizard too.
