I'm sure this has been asked and answered many times, but it's not working for me. I detail what I'm doing below. What am I doing wrong?

The problem:
After I move the database to drive, and restart the server, Mysql does not find the database.

Platform: Windows 10: MySql 5.7, Installed used: mysql-installer-community-

Steps taken:
1. Use Mysql Notifier to stop MySQL57
2. Using file manager, copy "C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\Data" to E:\MySql\Data
3. Use MySQL Workbench -- Run as Administrator -- Open Local Instance MySQL57
4. Select Server -> Options File
5. Change datadir from C:/ProgramData/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.7/Data to "E:/MYSQL/Data" and apply changes.
6. Close MySQL Workbench and use Use Mysql Notifier to Start MySQL57

MySQL notifier starts but turns yellow.
MySQL Workbench shows no tables and the server will not start.
