I have a client's server whose C: drive is nearly full, maybe 400MB remaining and I have done everything I can to free up space. The D: drive (data volume) has lots of space. It's a Server 2003 Standard box in a workgroup. I had previously installed BE 2010 R2 as a trial edition for testing but after a while had to remove it to free up some space on C: as it was almost completely full, even though during install I had specified the installation path as D:. Clearly some stuff is being put on C: despite that as I recall freeing some 200-300MB after uninstall.
Woudl there be any way to put BE purely on D: without much if anything going to C:?
Solved! Go to Solution.
With Backup Exec all the Debug log files are also so set to generate in the installed location.
Only the installed log files is only present in the "C:\" Drive and if you have not installed liveupdate it will default get installed in C drive.
Windows Server 2003 and prior : C:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\ApplicationData\Symantec\Backup Exec\Logs\
Windows Server 2008 and Vista : C:\ProgramData\Symantec\Backup Exec\Logs\
Check out the below article .
When you install BackuP Exec there are two locations to change the imnstall path
One is the core product location
default = C:\Progarm Files\Symantec\Backup Exec
the other is the SQL Expreess install path
default = C:\Progarm Files\\Microsoft SQL Server (I think)
Changing both of these will help
However as other's have said there are some common files (including LiveUpdate) that will end up on C:
It seems I can only mark one answer as solution so I had to go with the first one provided. But thank you to all that did reply. Colin I don't believe I looked into the path for SQL or if I did I probablyh opted to leave it as is or something so I will revisit that during another test install.
