SOLIDWORKS PDM Vault Maintenance: How to split your archive onto multiple discs
- Ensure User activity is stopped. Logins may be blocked from the admin tool and License usage may be checked from the Licensing section of the admin tool for Solidworks PDM 2015 and up. If possible, having users check in files is always a good precaution.
- Backup Solidworks PDM Recovery Files in the event of failed relocation due to process interruption. These files are the SQL Databases (vaults and conisiomasterdb), Vault File Folders and the backup.dat file from the Archive Server Configuration Tool.
- Launch the Archive Server Configuration Tool from the Windows Program List under Solidworks PDM on the Archive Server.
