Move a datastore

Move a Local Copy datastore to a new location.

You may need to move a Local Copy datastore to a new location if, for example, you don’t have enough disk space for it in the current location.

You move a datastore if the job has a status of Available, Updating, AvailableWithRollback or AvailableWithError.

To move a datastore you must:

  1. Pause the job.
  2. Move the datastore folder to its new location outside of Local Copy Manager.
  3. Update the datastore location for the job with the new folder to which you moved the datastore.
  4. Resume the job.

These steps are explained in detail below.

  1. From the Start menu, click All Programs > Aconex > Local Copy > Local Copy Manager.
  1. Click View Jobs.
  2. Find the job for which you want to change the datastore location. Select the checkbox to its left.
  3. Click the Pause button.
  1. Click on the arrow next to the Job Title and choose Edit properties from the dropdown menu.
Clicking Edit Properties
  1. In the Edit Properties page, scroll to the Datastore Write Location and enter the datastore’s new location.
Changing the datastore write location

  2. Click the Resume button to resume the job.
