How to 'Move' the Enterprise Vault Reports folder

Sometimes Enterprise Vault can produce quite sizeable report files in the REPORTS subfolder of the main Enterprise Vault installation folder.  There isn't a configuration option within Enterprise Vault, or a registry key, where you can change the physical path that these report files are written to… but you _can_ move the folder, using these simple steps:

  • Create a folder in the new location, eg E:\ReportsFolder
  • Copy the contents of the current 'Reports' folder to the new location
  • Delete the 'Reports' folder from inside the EV program folder.
  • Run:

          MKLINK /J "c:\program files (x86)\enterprise vault\reports" E:\ReportsFolder

Note: This works in Enterprise Vault when it is installed on Windows 2008 R2 x64.  Similar possibilities may exist in Windows 2003.
