I cannot find instructions for Kerio Connect 9.2 on how to move the Data (Mail) store from c:\program Files\kerio..... to e:\KerioStore.

I have done this a couple times. here is what I did. It may help if your mail store is large.

1) setup a sync app, like Robocopy, and set it up to sync the store over to the new location. You don't have to stop the mail services while this is going on.
2) Once the sync is complete. find a good time (overnight) to make the swap.
3) Stop the kerio service
4) run the sync app one more time to make sure it has everything. This shouldn't take long because the initial sync is already done.
5) In the KC console, change the store location (Advanced Options/Directory Location
6) restart the Kerio services

I think I'm remembering the steps correctly. I last did it a year ago. No problems at all

I've always found that the best way to do step 5 is to edit the configuration file directly (mailserver.cfg) replacing the old location with the new location before restarting the service since, IIRC, you don't have access to the admin console with the server stopped.

Cheers,
Jon

You're right Jon, I forgot about that.

Thank you. I thought that was all. I already performed the first robocopy. But I have seen a lot of chatter about Indexing errors and other faults that crop up after. But again these were all older posts.

Can someone enumerate EXCATLY what fields in the cfg file need to be changed.
DO I change ALL of the records below?

<variable name="StoreDir">C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store</variable>
<variable name="ArchiveDir">C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store\archive</variable>
<variable name="DownloadedFile">C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store/tmp/KMS-9-2-0-T-0-0.exe</variable >


<variable name="Path">C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store\fulltext</variable>
<variable name="StorePath">C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store/xmpp</variable><variable name="StorePath">C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store/im</variable>


<variable name="RelativePathsRoot">C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store/logs/</variable>
</table>
