How to move the Snoop-de-dupe cache folder

Snoop-de-dupe automatically creates a caching folder on your Servers system hard drive.  Most users will never need to change this setting.  If you are an advanced user who would like to change the location of this folder then follow the following steps.  Please read all steps and make sure you understand the requirements before proceeding.  This feature is only for advanced users.
  • read this entire page before starting
  • create the new cache folder in a location which is always available while your Server is running
  • attempt these steps if you are not absolutely certain what you are doing
  • create a new cache folder on a temporary storage device (e.g. a USB key) which can be removed from the server
Uninstall the Snoop-de-dupe add-in from your Server
RDP into your Server to perform the following steps
Open the Windows registry, via regedit.exe, and create a REG_SZ string value named “DataFolder” under the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\FileDeDupe\Settings.  Set the contents of the “DataFolder” value to the path you want to use as the new Snoop-de-dupe Cache folder.  As a reference, you can download this file and rename the file extension from .txt to .reg.  Running this .reg file on your Server will configure a cache folder in D:\Snoop-De-Dupe. Make sure the cache folder exists on your storage device (i.e. you must physically create the folder with Windows Explorer or a Command shell)
Copy your existing Snoop-de-dupe cache data from the old cache folder to the new cache folder you just created.  For Windows Home Server, the original cache folder is located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\FileDeDupe.  For WHS/SBS 2011, this folder is located in C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\FileDeDupe
Delete your old cache data from the original cache folder
Re-install the latest version of Snoop-de-dupe add-in on your Server
Open the Server Console and select the Snoop-de-dupe tab.  All of your previous settings will be available to you
That’s it!
