    Rerouting tableau extracts from the "C:\ProgramData" directory to an external hard drive

    Hilary Cooksley

      Hello!

       

      Wondering if anyone has ever tried re-routing Tableau extracts from the C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\data_engine\extract directory to a different location on their machine which hosts Tableau Server. I can easily write a batch file to copy and paste the extracts to a different location, but wanted to eliminate that step if I could.

       

      Love to hear ideas if anyone out there has attempted this before.

       

      Thanks in advance!

       

      Cheers!
