I am trying to move the print spooler folder to the E:\ drive. But it gives an error, can't save server settings, access denied. I am accessing the server properties using the print management console. Actually that was the only way I could access them. How do I move the folder?
Sorry, this does not work for me. I have Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition and try to move the spool directory in the Printer Server properties. I typed E:\spool but I get the same error as bateslabel in his post "Cant save server settings, access denied".
Logged on as Administrator, created the directory E:\Spool etc, - But no way to get this simple thing done!
Need urgent help.
After HOURS of trying, I found a solution - IS THIS A BUG or BY DESIGN????:
In the Print server properties - Advanced - type: <DriveLetter>:\\<New Print spooler location>
To move the spooler from C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS to D:\PRINTspooler type the following:
the 2 backslashes after the drive letter make all the difference?!?!
