Dr Watson files on the Z drive

We have a Windows 2003 server running Exchange 2007 server with multiple drive letters..for some reason on the Z drive there is Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DW directory. We need to get rid of the Z drive..how can I get these files moved to the C drive?

Registry shows hklm\software\wow6432node\microsoft\pchealth\errorreporting\dw\installed
dw0200 reg_sz C:\PROGRA~2\COMMON~1\MICROS~1\DW\DW20.EXE
and
dw0201 reg_sz C:\PROGRA~2\COMMON~1\MICROS~1\DW\DW20.EXE

Have you tried configuring Dr Watson through the executable?
Start > Run
drwtsn32.exe

Start > Run
drwtsn32.exe

from this change the log path and Crash dump path to any other drive and once this is configured you can remove the contents from the Z drive

ABSGDATAAuthor Commented:
both the Log file path and crash dump are pointing to C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Dr Watson....

so are you saying the contents in the z:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DW are not needed?

It would seem so. What are the creation dates for those files? If they are old, you can delete/move them.

Dr Watson should have to run unless there is another problem. If it needs to write files, then the files tell you what your actual problem is.
