klick on the Deduplication Engine and say all Tasks and than you have the window to move partitions 
also i have copied you the link for it in here: Moving a Deduplication Database to Another Location (

Of course, there is! But before you follow the steps on moving the DDB itself, please consider the destination hardware where the DDB will be moved to. The main to look out for is that the destination disk is fast enough to host a DDB. The DDB is a database where performance is highly reliant on the IOPS available on the disk hardware provided to it and thus would perform better on SSD class disks rather than traditional HDDs. 


Refer to hardware requirements here:  


Once you have the appropriate hardware to host the DDB, follow the documented steps below on how to perform the actual move:
