This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello to all

Does anybody know if it possible to change de "Enteprise Vault\Reports" folder path?

I found the "LogFolderPath", but only works for the Backtrace Utility and not for the scheduled or run now task.

I don't think that is possible. Any specific reason why you want to change this?

The reason is because there is not much free space at the C:\ drive in the EV Server. The customer wants to run a full FSA archive in a target server that holds about 5 TB of data.

It will generate a long log file in the server, and it will cause the services to stop .

No GertjanA is correct its appended to the install path and it cant be changed I'm afraid.

Possible to check.

Temp location of the VSA - move that to another drive.

Temp location in general - remove old files.

Any (large) programs you don't need? Uninstall

Verify 'my documents', try to remove profiles that are not needed on that server.

Is your page file on the c-drive, move it.

Verify sub-folders under ..\reports, delete old files.

Empty recycle bin :-)

In the Windows folder, remove the _$uninst folders (contain windows update files, to be able to uninstall updates. these take up lot of space, but who uninstalls an update) or move to a different drive.

But you can change it...

Do this when things are nice and quiet.

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.


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

Bingo. :)

@GertjanA Thanks for your replies. This best practice is applied (modify the Temp path)

@Rob.Wilcox Thanks for your solution!! At the moment it's working. I will do a grow archiving task this night. I expect all work fine. Thanks!!
