Moving ACT! 2006 Database

I am using ACT! 2006 Version 8. My database is stored in c:\Documents and Settings\My Name\My Documents\ACT for Win 7\Databases. I have another folder c:\Documents and Settings\My Name\My Documents\ACT for Windows 8\Databases that is empty except for the ACT8Demo.

 

Is there any way to MOVE the database and all related files to a more user-friendly folder from default install? Without having to create new database and export records (which I have done for testing purposes, btw)?

 

I would MUCH prefer my ACT database reside in a more user-friendly folder, say c:\ACT Database. Much easier to find, especially for backup purposes. I do not use My Documents, principally because I'm "old school" and prefer specific folders for all my data.

 

Not sure how this occurred (upgrade process, maybe?), but... Is there any way to MOVE the ACT database?

 

Thanks.
