I need to change the location of the windows temp files on a sbs2008 server. I know how to do this but was wondering if there are any un for seen issues changing this location. It will basically be on a different partition.
WIth out going into too much detail I have Symantec Mail Security which writes to this directory to process spam filtering, updates, rules, etc. in doing all this writing to disk it affects our incremental backups to data center and i need to not have this included in the backup. Unfortunately the c:\windows\temp directory is hard coded into the symantec product (so they tell me) and can not be altered. I am hoping changing the enviroment variables will fix this and force symantec to look at the new temp location.
Thanks in advance.
