IIS – Move InetPub

After installing IIS it's default location is the system drive. For smaller websites and services that does not result in a problem, but when you're a hosting company or going to provide storage for a large number of websites you'll have to move the inetpub folder. When you don't have any websites installed this is quite easily done by copying the files to the new location and changing the settings on your website in IIS. But what if you already have more then one and are lazy just as me ?

Well I came across the following script that alows you to move inetpub to another drive without doing anything manually expect running the script using CLI.
