Change Software updater folder

Hi all, is it possibile to use another disk on a server (for ex. drive D) for software updater cache?

F-secure policy manager server allows me to configure the maximum cache size but not the folder destination so drive C: is used by default....

    Hi Spacetwo,

    It is possible to move some sub-folders or the whole data folder using symbolic link (Directory Junction) that forwards disk requests to another disk. Use command mklink to create it at Windows.

    What is the correct folder to link?

    If you wish to move only Software Updater cache, c:\Program Files (x86)\F-Secure\Management Server 5\data\swup\updates is the proper one. In this case, command will look like:

    mklink /J "c:\Program Files (x86)\F-Secure\Management Server 5\data\swup\updates" "d:\FS-data\updates"


    BTW, make sure that targer directory has the same NTFS permissions as original one...
