Supplying path on differential restore

Let's say I restored a full backup from one server on another server. Put the database files in a different location. I left the database in recovering state.

I then go to restore a differential. Red-Gate does not let me change the paths of the log and data files like SQL Server does. Therefore I cannot restore the differential.

Or am I missing something?

    Does SQL Server allow you to perform a differential restore and move (using the MOVE option) the database files to a new location at the same time? Could you pls provide a sample command to do this? Thanks.
