Moving Arcserve 2000 database

Hi,

I have an file server with Windows 2003 server SP1 with Arcserve 2000 installed on it. Arcserve is installed on the C-partion but the Arcserve database is growed to 3,5 GB and my C-partion is near capacity. On my E-part I have 10 Gb free so I want's to move the database to the E-part.

What I have done:
1. Stop the Arcserve services
2. Copied the map Database to the E-partion E:\Arcserve\Database
3. Change the registry setting [Hkey_LM, Software, Computer Associates, ArcserveIt, Base, Path] " Database"  in E:\Arcserve\Database.
4. Start the arcserve services

Arcserve still usage the database on my C-partion

When I stop the Arcserve services I cannot rename the map Database to Database.old it is still in Use?

Does anyone know what to do more to moving the database to the E-partion?

Thanks
Marco Badoux

As the above link to one of my previous responses points out the database can moved.

The way to do it is to reinstall the product to the new location. Make a backup copy of the queue (00000001.qsd) and the database directories and after the install just copy them to the new location.

It should be pointed out that ARCserve 2000 is NOT certified compatible with 2003. It is nice that it has been working for you but safe to say it is not recommended to continue.
