Scenario: Your running out of space on your hard drive and want to move your ProjectWise storage area to a new drive, a new PW Caching server, or a network appliance.
Lock everyone out of the system so that no files can be checked out or in.
In windows explorer copy the files from the old location to the new location
In PW administrator, right click on the storage area and re-point the server and path to the new location.
When prompted click okay to the warning message about moving the storage area.
In PW explorer, go to a folder that is assigned to the storage area and try to checkout\copy or export a file and check it back in. If all is good, then your done. Let everyone back on to the system.
Simply turn off the integration server service while moving the files, then turn the integration server service back on and launch the admin and change the storage pointer before anyone else gets in the system.
This works well; all we need now is a one-button click to lock the users out.
