Relocating EPDM Archive folders

By default EPDM puts your physical vault archives in this path, C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Enterprise PDM\Data\<Your Vault Name>. If you are about to run out of disk space on your archive server or are moving your server to a brand new machine, you can very easily relocate these folders through the EPDM Archive Server Configuration tool.

Select Archive Server Configuration.


Right click on your vault and select "Relocate".


Finally, change the file path to where you want the archives to relocate to.


Enjoy and remember to visit

  1. I moved all my data and it read fine, but when I was trying to save files to the vault it would not give the file cards to fill out. Can you please help? Thanks.

  2. I moved all my data to an external network drive, I can read it but when I try to save new files it won’t give the data cards to fill in. Have you experienced this before?
