    SIMS System Manager backup path

    This path can be displayed via Tools > Backup Path in SIMS System Manager - but how can it be changed? Ours is pointing at C: and there's not enough space there - we want to point it at E:. Anyone know where the path is kept? Tried a search through files and the registry on the server. Manual says it's set when Infrastructure first installed but I can't believe it's unchangeable! Really?!

    I believe that you can't change it once SQL has been installed.

    I changed ours when we moved SIMS servers but I guess you could re-install SQL and choose another path if you're feeling adventurous (and have good backups).

    Re: SIMS System Manager backup path

    We had a problem where once we migrated to 2005 the backup path changed to some random, non-existant place. This worked for me (although we're still keeping a close eye on it).

    You can change it in the registry, if you go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\*DB name*\setup
    You can change the SQL Path there to the correct one and Sims seems to pick it up from there.

    This is not definitely the right way, just the only way I could find (without reinstalling).
