Hi Support,

I have an issue with retargetting the jobs to new B2D folders after a Service pack 3 upgrade of the BE 2010 R3.

I had to recreate the folders and edit the job setup.

Is there any hotfix to correct this as the client is not yet ready to go for BE 2012 and they want this resolved.

Thank you for your response.

You got to provide more details of your problem. Otherwise, nobody can help you.

It's possible that recreating your folders fixed the issue.

It is possible that you have been caught out by the 2012 restriction of ONLY 1 B2D folder per Windows Volume which nmeans that during an upgrade some of the folders will be marked as read only and you do then have to retarget affected jobs to other Disk Storage/B2D devices.

If this is your problem then sorry but this was caused by an operational design change and I am not aware that we intend to change the new behaviour

Hi Colin,

I used the option I got from other members and i changed the destination from within the job properties.

This is not nice. Moreover this customer has not yet upgraded to BE 2012. This is still BE 2010 R3 which was upgraded to SP3.

This is the correct answer for anyone looking - I changed devices and had to change job locationswith the job properties  in order to remove the device

What happened that caused you to have to recreate the folders and edit the job settings?

There havent been any hotfixes released since sp3
