Default Besx

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All!

I work for a small company, and we recently installed a BES Express server. I do not recall if there was an option to save it to a different location or not, but it currently resides in C:\Program Files

My question is this: Can I copy the Research In Motion folder from the C drive and put it on a different partition? The reason I ask is because the E drive has much more free space than the C drive. I didn't want to just move the folder though, as I do not know how it will effect the BESX.

If this is not a simple copy & paste, is there a place I can find detailed steps on how to change its location? Or is it possible to do during the install? If so I can reinstall, seeing as how we have fery few users and it didn't take very long to configure.

Thanks ahead of time for any tips!

I think if you only have a few users, it would be in your best interest to start from scratch. I don't think there is any easy way to do what you want due to all the registry files unless through Add/Remove programs allows a modify.

I believe you select the location of the BES Express install files during the setup.
