I don't see a tech article on moving a message archive location. I need to move archiving from drive E to F on the same server, but I need to keep all existing email and search indices. So, I did a copy of one domain as a test from e:\archive\acme to f:\archive\acme. Took about 3 hours. After it finished, I did a quick robocopy to catch any new messages which arrived during the initial copy, and then changed the archiving location in SM for that domain. I didn't do a service restart of any kind.
However, to test whether or not SM was searching the new location and not old, I tried to rename the old acme folder to acme1 but Windows said the folder was still in use.
What is the official method (if there is one) to moving an existing archive from one place to another?
**edit** I'm still on 11.7 by the way. (I know, I really should do my 14.x upgrade...)
