I'm currently sharing out my /Groups folder from my server, I'd like to move one of the underlying group folders to another disk volume due to size but I still want it to appear under the /Groups share. Any ideas how to accomplish this without resorting to sharing the individual underlying folder(s)?

(note, just symlinking the group folder from its original Groups/subfolder location to the new location will not work, if I do this the symlink itself gets shared, not the referenced folder/contents. Had to try.)
