Be careful with the Qlik PostgreSQL installer especially if you run a large installation of Qlik (>10 000 users and thousands of apps). 

The PostgreSQL repository grows immensely and Qlik assumes you're running a small business setup.

Qlik PostgreSQL installer installs the data directory into drive C: and couples your repository data with the Windows system drive that should be dedicated for Windows system and programs. Terrible architecture!

Never couple business data (repository) with a system drive.

You would assume a company like Qlik knows to ask customer where to install the %Data Directory%. 

Thanks... I hope this saves you several hours of work after office hours...


@teemu_jr  From version 1.3.0 you have the possibility to install data and binary folder it on any drive.
