This page explains how to change the location of project and log files for NVivo Server projects. If you are using NVivo Server 11, refer to Change the location of new projects (NVivo Server 11).
By default, server project data and log files are stored in the directory:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL12.QSRNVIVO9\MSSQL\DATA\
This location may be different depending on whether you’ve upgraded from NVivo Server 11 rather than doing a fresh install.
You can change the location of project and log files separately, for example—you might want to store log files on a network location rather than on the server that hosts your NVivo projects.
To change the locations of data and log files for new projects:
Open the NVivo Server Manager.
Click the Settings tab.
Click the Browse buttons beside the Data file and Log file boxes to select the new folder locations. We recommend you store data and log files in an uncompressed locally attached disk that NVivo Server has permission to write to.
