If you wish to move the Data folder, the following steps need to be taken.
1. Open the Config Manager and stop the APS services. Detach any SQL Databases
2. Move the entire data folder (and subfolders) to the new location
3. Open the Data/Backup tab in the Configuration Manager and select the new folder location using “browse”
4. Restart the APS services and re-attach SQL Databases.
Note: Copies of the folder can also be made. You can switch between them by changing the Data Folder value and restarting the services.
