I was able to reproduce a related bug in WLMail 14.0.8050.1202, by cancelling a relocation of the Message Store during its operation.
The error message "Windows Live Mail was unable to complete the move to the selected location. Your mail store will not be moved." forever continues to pop up every time WLMail is closed after the Message Store relocation was cancelled during operation.
Two registry Values that I know of are created when WLMail is scheduled to move (copy) the Message Store to a new location:
'New Store Folder'
Within the Key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
To eliminate this popup, or prevent WLMail from attempting to move the Message Store again, simply delete these two registry Values.
As for solving the problem of not being able to move your WLMail Message Store, what you can do is close WLMail, then copy the Message Store yourself to the desired location.
Then go to the registry Key->Value:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail->Store Root
Double click on the Value name 'Store Root' then edit the Value Data to change the path to the new location for your Message Store.
When you restart WLMail, the Message Store in its new location will come into effect.
