Change Index server temp directory

 Original Author:Bentley Technical Support Group

Problem Description

User would like to change the Temp directory where the Indexing  Service stored documents that wouldn’t index.   The directory was getting too big so they wanted to move it to another hard drive.


You can over-ride the location of the async-extraction directory as follows:
Place the following text in a .bat file and place in the Indexing Server, and double click on it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Bentley\ProjectWise\Automated File Processing] "ExtractionTempDir"="e:\\other_directory_name\\async-extraction"

Where e:\other_directory_name could be anything. The double backslashes are only necessary in the quoted string value if you used the above lines as a .reg file.

Change the entry after the ExtractionTempDir= to a directory with the drive and location you wish to have.
