You would need to explain that. I have no idea what you want to do ;-(

How can I change the location where SEP stores definition or/and signature files?  Default seems to be C:\ drive.  I'm low on space there, and would like to change my system so that they are stored on D:\.

This post helped solve the problem while we were waiting for MR2 to come out a couple years ago.  I put the fix in and it's been working fine under MR4/MP2 until what appears to be the new year (2010).

Not sure what changed with the new year, but my boot partition on my server is filling up again, despite the redirection that remains unchanged.

I found 120Mb of free space and after deleting all the temp directories in the SymcData folder, it freed up 13Gb on a 20Gb partition.  Less than 24hrs later, I've already lost about 2Gb to more temp files.

I prepped my boss for the coming interaction with tech support to try and figure out what's going on.
