Moving Symantec SAV 10.1 files to alternate drive or extending C: drive partition
Posted on 2008-10-08
I have a Windows 2K Server running Exchange with an 8G partitioned C: drive and various other partitioned drives. When installing Symantec SAV 10.1, I chnaged the install files to point to an alternate drive (L:) as the Exchange Server eats most of this space. What I got instead was Symantec filling up my C: drive in two places: c:\program files\common files\Symantec Shared\ and
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate. Eventually, my C: drive was completely filled with what I think are updates. This is very frustrating as I directed the install to my L: drive, which has 160G available. After doing some Internet searches it seams that these two locations cannot be moved from the C: drive while installing Symantec SAV. What are my options? Is there a way to extend the C: drive partition (Raid 5) so to accommodate the Symantec SAV or is there a way to manually move these two locations to a different drive? I am VERY nervous about messing with the C: partition. Any suggestions?
