Sophos migration default location query

I'm in the process of migration Sophos v5.2 from one server to another and wanted to enquire if the default warehouse, working directory and default update location can be changed to another partition on the new server i.e:

Change from c: drive on the old server (win 2003):
                C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sophos\Update Manager\Update Manager\

To a partition 'D' on new server (win 2008 R2) :

Any advice would be much appreciated

How to change your default warehouse, working directory and default update location before or after installing Endpoint Security and Control

By default the Sophos database will restore to the C drive on the server, this cannot be changed during installation. In order to change the drive that the database files are located it is necessary to backup the database, drop it, then restore to the new location. See

the "server to server migration guide" is handy guide and by default
Enterprise Console is installed on the old server in the default location and will be installed in the default location on the new server. If a different location is used then any folder paths referenced in this guide must be modified accordingly.
