Re: Best Way to Copy the Folder

Hi 

i have done below steps its working 

Option 2 (This option makes sense if your defined root path does not contains drive letter reference. Example: \\SERVER\SHAREDFOLDER):

1. Stop all Qlik Sense services.

2. Unshare your shared folder using Windows share options in the folder properties.

3. Create a new folder to be used for root folder where you want to use but make its name same as the previous one.

4. Share this folder now and make sure that UNC path is exactly the same as the previous one.

5. Copy all previous folder content into the new one.

6. Start all Qlik Sense services.

Definitely, In this case, I will configure windows server backup (pretty easy) so if something goes wrong I can go back easily.

I've not had to worry about this as one of the benefits of a VM server is the relative ease to add more storage to a drive.

Yossef has pointed at the useful resources around this task and you are going to be taking backups of your environment before you start.

Perhaps a less risky option might be to point your lib data connections at the d: \ if you have a significant number of qvds, config and flat file data sources and backups taking up space on your servers c: \

Re: Best Way to Copy the Folder

Thats why I created a central folder for QVDs, Config etc... and then created subfolders under it so I could reduce the number of connections in case I had to move it.  I have 90 apps on my server so had to be practical.
