I have a network of computers that use Windows 7 Backup system. They each send their backup to a shared drive on the network.

I now wish to change which drive they send them too. This works fine. However, I want windows to be able to find the old backups in case of failure. Can I just move the files? or do I need to be more careful?

(I don't want to experiment by clicking and hoping because I don't have a dummy system on which to experiment on)

Yes, it is ok to move them. In fact, you have to move em for a bare metal restore.
