Move Backup Exec Data folder location

The C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\Data folder is 29GBs. I need to move it off onto the attached storage because I'm out of space on the server's C drive. Anyone know how to do this? It looks like it can be done through SQL but I'm having some issues...

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You probably should move the catalogs folder and leave the data folder alone.

My data folder has about 2GB
Please check Hyper-V sub-folder for any fingerprints.
Maybe one of your Hyper-V client backup failed in the past and old fingerprints have left in this folder.
You can simply remove all except from last full backup (compare to Backup Date)
Also go to Your Backup Exec settings and check how many months you keep Catalogs. My setting is : Truncate catalogs after 3 months
and in Database Maintenance I set: Keep History fir specified number of Days to 120 (4 Months)
I think this is enough.

This should clean your Database, catalogs and other logs after next services restart

Thanks pgm554! I moved the Catalogs a month or so ago and that helped for a bit. Obviously now I have a different issue to fix.

Thanks Tom Cieslik! I'm having issues getting the Services started up again and I can't restart right now. I will look at this as soon as I can get back in the console.

Hi Tom Cieslik,

So my "Keep job history for data..." is set at 90 Days. The only other thing that is different from your screenshot is that I don't have "Optimize database size" checked, so I  went ahead and checked that.

Sorry, but do you mean by fingerprints? I looked through the Settings and didn't see anything regarding it.

We're not running any Hyper-V but we do have a few VMWare clients. I don't see anything regarding VMWare or vSphere in that folder.

Thanks for the help! Sorry it took so long to close this question; however, while helpful there doesn't seem to be an actual way to do what I was trying to accomplish.
