Change Or Move the Qlik Sense Disk Driver From C

Hi ,

I want to change the installation files and program data of QlikSense Enterprise on Windows into another driver (ex. E:/ Driver).

The problem is that the C:/ driver is only 100 GB and QlikSense installed on it, and the driver is currently full because of the QlikSense and its postgras database occupied around 55% (53.8 GB) of the driver.  So, I want to know how to move the qlik sense form C:/ to E:/ which it is around 4 TB on the same server. 

Thanks in advance.

Hello @MohamedZaitoon,

Thanks for posting.

I was wondering if you have tried to take a backup of the PostgreSQL DB (after cleaning it as @Seanog_Murphy has suggested), then uninstall Qlik Sense, afterwards install Qlik Sense by selecting another disk different to C, restore the DB you had backup and see if all works as expected.

I would suggest to try on a Sandbox and if successful plan your backup/rollback plan (as best practise) and perform such action on the affected server.

Let us know how it goes.

Cheers,

Albert
