On some machines with small C: partition we would like to move the folder c:\programdata\dell\kace\download on another partition. Is it possible ?

  • There's been a uservoice request about this already. You may want to vote on this. But at the moment, there isn't a way to alter the download location.

  • question with question.... why do you have multiple partitions??
    • One partition for the operating system, one for personnal data
      • how big are your hard drives?? how do you split them up?? using % for user data?? or a fixed size?
  • Another reason, we have some package of 4Gb zipped, 8Gb unzipped and 15Gb installed. So we need near 30Gb free to deploy it. In certain configurations it's hard to handle.
  • @Badger they starts from 160 Gb. We partition them like this : 8Gb Linux Swap - 40Gb Linux - 30Gb data (D:) - what is left for C: . We have lost of big softwares to deploy on some machine : maya, solidworks, sas, catia... and we can't let 30 Gb free do deploy softwares.

Finally I did it like this
rmdir /q /S "C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\downloads"
md d:\downloads
attrib +h d:\downloads
icacls d:\ /restore "%~dp0DownloadsACLs" /T
mklink /d "C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\downloads" d:\downloads

And the content of "%~dp0DownloadsACLs" :
