Temp directory used by BackupAssist - option to specify

by inruletechnology » Sat Oct 30, 2010 5:42 am

there are 2 temp dir contexts i know of using BA. It should be more apparent / easy how to change these, since it's sometimes necessary to point to a larger volume than the default locations

1) General operations - uses the %TEMP% dir of the service account (typically the system %TEMP%). Can change this by changing in control panel -> System

2) VSS and ExMerge - by default BA uses a dir under %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\BackupAssist v6\temp. No option in UI to change this - I managed to change for existing BA jobs by doing export, edit configs, then import. However, this resulted in clobbered lost settings as described in separate post - and newly-created jobs would still use default loc.
