Stop Jira, stop the database server, move the data, reconfigure your database server to use the new location, restart the database server, restart Jira.
Jira doesn't actually care where the database is physically located, it talks to the database server, not the file system.
Very heavy emphasis on the "not for production use" - I've moved HSQL test databases around using that method, and sometimes it works, and other times, you lose everything. Definitely not for production (there's other things that go "bang" if you use hsql as well...)
If you are using HSQL database (The one which comes embedded with jira standalone and is not for production use) you can try followin:
1. stop jira
2. copy database folder mentioned in dbconfig.xml to new location
3. update dbconfig.xml with new location
4. start jira
