If for some reason you need to move your cache from on drive to another on your server (if you have multiple servers, it's the one with the filecache).

Then please read the guide on "Adding drives for cache" as files used in here are referenced.

NOTE: This is best done out of normal work hours, as you will have to restart the filecache's app pool a couple of times and this may cause clients uploads to restart.



  1. Ensure that your new destination is added to your
    ArchiveDrives.cfg (mentioned in the guide above).
    (Note: remember to restarte the filecache's App pool to load in the new destinations.)

  2. Preferably you should stop the filecache's app pool in the IIS now to stop any new files from being uploaded.
    (Note: this will mean people aren't able to download files either.)

  3. Then copy the files from your old destination, to your new destination.

  4. Afterwards remove the old location from the
    ArchiveDrives.cfg and (re)start the filecache's app pool again.
    (Note: please ensure in the logs that the new destination was correct)

  5. Only if you weren't able to stop the filecache while the above steps. 
    Now copy all files from the old location to the new location again 

  6. Now all the files will be downloaded from the new location instead
    And all new files will be place here aswell.

  7. If possible test it by downloading a file from one of the companies which data was moved.
