How do you move the Borland Search Server application from one drive to another without losing extracted data?


In order to do this please follow these instructions:

1. Stop the Borland Search Server (BSS) service
2. Copy the bss folder from “C:\Program Files\Borland\Borland Search\apache-tomcat-5.5.27\webapps”  to a temp area (e.g. D:\temp\bss)
3. Uninstall BSS.
4. Install BSS to the new bigger drive, (e.g. D:)
5. Reapply any modifications such as changes to any batch files etc as per readme instructions.
6. Start BSS. This will create a new bss folder.
7. Stop BSS.
8. Delete the bss newly created bss folder (e.g. D:\Program Files\Borland\Borland Search\apache-tomcat-5.5.27\webapps\bss)
9. Copy the original bss folder from D:\temp\bss to “D:\Program Files\Borland\Borland Search\apache-tomcat-5.5.27\webapps”.
10. Start BSS.

The extracted data will now exist in the bss\data folder and any further extractions will use this folder.
