Copy the full contents of the current incomplete folder to a backup dir.

Adjust the settings in SAB so that SAB would use your new incomplete dir (I think you need to restart SAB, look at the settings page).

Move everything from the old incomplete dir to the new incomplete dir.

Go to 'status' - 'queue repair' and do a 'repair'.

You should now have your original queue at the new location (nzb order is most likely different).

PS: A very big incomplete folder means you should do some housekeeping. Normally the incomplete folder should not grow much beyound the largest file you are downloading (say 60 Gb if you are downloading full blu-rays). Failed downloads are marked by SAB in RED in the download history, but are also stored in the incomplete folder (until you repair/move/delete/... them). If your incomplete folder is much larger than your largest file you are downloading, then check if you have some failed and/or orphaned downloads there.
