EndPoint Protection using too much disk: can I re-install and solve problem?
This old server has a tiny C drive. I researched the problems with LIveUpdate using up lots of space, and have found lots of inconsistencies on disk folder locations with the Symantec sources I found (Mick2009).
Also, SEP did not install with LUA.
This 2003 win sbs server had an old installation of LiveUpdate from when we used Symantec Antivirus products a few years ago. I did uninstall the antivirus, but not the liveupdate
When I install SEP on the e drive, I find after 3 days 13 GB of space has been used, but i can only find 2 GB in e:\program files\....SEP\data\backup.
all I want is for all the diskspace that SEP needs be used from e: drive. Installing SEP on e: did not accomplish that objective as my c drive has shrunk by 3GB since the install of SEP on 3/22/2013.
Can I uninstall SEP, LU, and delete old folders, then reinstall SEP using custom mode and make all data storage needs go to e:?
If that doesn't work, can I install LUAM and reassign the storage locations? Will LUAM figure out where stuff is (btw, I could not find the LU version number).
Any other suggestions for how to solve my immediate dilema of tiny C drive, lots of space on e:, and wanting to use EndPoint Protection on this server?
If I can't get a solution, that I can't use SEP (I'm in the trial time) and will have to find another solution. My first attempt at running SEP caused the c: drive to almost fill and the system to go unstable and I had to scramble to get it back up (because I didn't realize SEP and LU would eat my c: ). We plan to replace the tiny C drive, but that will be a few weeks out, and I need protection in the meantime.
