Hi all,

I am currently running out of disk space on the C drive of my Exchange server. I have moved all non essential applications to another HDD. The last one I need to resolve is Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange. I would rather not install this again but rather change the location of the Rapid Release updates. Is it possible to configure Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange to point to a new location to download its updates or does it just place them in the install directory?

Thanks,

Pag

The last time I saw this problem it wasn't resolvable by a move there was a Symantec KB article that even said as much.

I ended up throwing in a new HDD and adding it as a mount point into the Symantec folder - dirty, but it worked and was supported by Symantec.

It was a few years ago though, so hopefully they'd have resolved this by now but being Symantec, I wouldn't hold my breath!

I wasn't able to move the location of the Symantec Virus download files. i will look at other options most likely growing the partition.
