Move Distribution Point Content library between drives SCCM 2012 R2

Now that we have access to the Configuration Manager 2012 R2 Toolkit http://larslohmann.blogspot.dk/2013/12/configuration-manager-toolkit-for.html, lets try to move Distribution point data from one drive to another.

In order to do this we need ContentLibraryTransfer.exe

ContentLibraryTransfer.exe -SourceDrive <current drive letter> -TargetDrive <new drive letter>

When you install the toolkit the file will typically be in C:\Program Files (x86)\ConfigMgr 2012 Toolkit R2\ServerTools

So start a command prompt as administrator and change the path:

Then lets try to move the content from the C drive to the D drive as shown here:

ContentLibraryTransfer.exe -SourceDrive C -TargetDrive D >c:\logs\move.log

You may want to pipe the output to a log file, this will make it easier to examine the result afterwards:

C drive before the transfer:

And C driver after the transfer, notice that the program has created a NO_SMS_ON_DRIVE.SMS file on the source drive:
