Question

How can I move the Processing State PM folder?

 

Answer

  1. For FTK, confirm it is closed and nothing is processing.  For Summation, confirm it is not processing and stop all AccessData services.
  2. Open regedit.exe (as Administrator)
  3. Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AccessData\Products\Evidence Processing Engine\10.12 key*
  4. Double-click the StateDirectory value
    Note: If that value doesn't already exist, create it as a "String Value".
  5. Change the path in the "Value data" to the preferred location
  6. Reboot

* The EP version (10.12 in the example) will vary

Overview

This will allow you to re-locate your Processing State PM folder post-install.  It is important that this folder is in a location that will not run out of space while processing, or your processing jobs may hang, die, or result in case corruption.
