    Qlik Sense Server -   seperate Drive for Data?

    Keith Roos

      Okay let me take another run at this.  I'm  new to Qlik.

      When installing the server piece, it installed everything on C: Drive as I specified in the custom set up.

      My C drive is roughly 400GB .  I have a D drive that is roughly 1TB.


      Should I worry about filling up the 400 GB drive with data and .QVF files?   Is there a way to leave the Qlik Sense Server pieces on the C drive , but move the Data storage to the D Drive  or is the best practice to install everything on the larger D drive?







      Typical server set up, smaller C drive for programs and a large D drive for data


      It seems when I installed the  Qlik Sense Server piece, it placed everything on the  C drive.


      I'd like to move the Data storage portion to the D drive. Is that possible, or is my best bet to uninstall and reinstall everything on the D drive?

          Qlik.JPG.jpgOkay I figured it out and thought I'd post the answer, just in case anyone else had this same issue.

          It was simply  editing the path of the "Working Folder" under the Apps Section of the Central Engine.

          Go to "Engines" under the Configure System on the left hand side of the Qlik Management Console.

          Select the Central Engine and click the Edit button.

          You can then change the path of the "Working Folder", under the Apps section.

          Once the Qlik Sense Services were restarted, the new location was active.

          Only issue I found, was if there are existing "Apps", you need to move them into the new folder.
