Hi Nowsms team
Happy new year ,
our MMSCDATA path is quite big ( about 45 Gb ).
It is located on c:\Program_files but is it possible to change the directory in order to put it on another disk ( other that system disk ) on a easy way ?
thanks beforehand for your help

Hi Marc,

Stop the services.

Move or copy MMSCDATA.

Under the [MMSC] section of MMSC.INI add:

DataDir=d:\path


Start services.

Hi Bryce ,
I have additionnals questions,
i was supposed to do your recommendation but as the path are 45 GB big and the most difficulty is the numbe of files,
it takes about more than 2 hours to transfer all and we cannot do this , i mean to cut the traffic during 2 hours.
Is it possible to do the change without copying the file ?
as it is rotate during 10 days, and we don't use the file included in th MMSCDATA path, it is not important to copy the file unless it is important for the system.
WHy do you think about doing the same as you mention but not copy the file ?
thanks beforehand for your help ,

I'm sorry for the delay Marc. I needed time to better evaluate your charging query, and forgot that you had 2 separate questions.

The subfolders of MMSCDATA are encoded as dates...copy over today and yesterday and that will cover most transactions...except for a device that has been off-line for awhile. It's probably best to plan for a short outage. Stop the service...change the setting...copy today and yesterday...start the service...copy the remaining.
