Moving a Projectwise Storage area.

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.

Quick steps:

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.
