Newbie trying to move data folder containing XML files

Ran out of space so had to move the catalogs which I did. Now the data folder has filled up the c drive so I need to move the xml files? Any one know how to do this? and what it will impact if I deleted the XML files?

Re: Newbie trying to move data folder containing XML files

The xml files are your backup job log files (aka job history logs). If you open up a backup log it will point to the relevant xml file. If you delete the xml file you'll receive an error whenever you open up the backup log (that points to the xml file you deleted). This is not a big issue.

You can also use the database maintenance tool so it controls all of this for you. Go to "Tools" on the menu bar and select "Options", go down to "Database maintenance". You can configure when data should be purged for the "job history" and "job logs".

Also, can I suggest to use the "summary information only" under the "job logs" section (in options). This will make sure your logs are only small.

You can try changing the registry setting to point to a different path. It's located in:

LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VERITAS\Backup Exec\Engine\Misc

I wouldn't recommend changing it though as I haven't tested this (I'll try it out on a test server to see what happens).

Re: Newbie trying to move data folder containing XML files

Hi,

The job logs and job history cannot be moved to a different server or on the same server to a different location. The xml files cannot be moved as they point to the data folder and location cannot be changed.

Do you want to move all jobs to a different server which has Backup exec installed?

If yes, you can follow this document:
