  • Moving IIS SEO Data to New Computer?

    Sep 02, 2012 09:23 PM|uncoolcentral|LINK

    Just built a screaming new machine, and I want to be able to access my old IIS SEO reports on the new computer. 

    Do you know where the appropriate files are stored and is it as simple as pasting old into new?

    ...Or is there a page with instructions for this sort of thing? I've moved data over from every other app; IIS SEO is waiting in the wings. Please let me know what you know.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

     My reports are saved in the following directory.

    C:\Users\UserName\Documents\IIS SEO Reports

    You should be able to just move these to the new PC.

    I'd already tried that (didn't work) and I also forgot to ask a more thorough question:

    Upgraded to SSD, and don't want several gigs (and growing) of old reports and pages on the primary drive. Is there a way to either

    1. change where IIS stores data

    2. install IIS to a secondary drive

    and if "no", then

    3. What do I have to do other than copying  /IIS SEO Reports for old machine to new machine? (It might help to note that there was NOT already an /IIS SEO Reports dir anywhere on the new machine. Copying it to the same spot did not cause any projects to show up in IIS SEO.

    Thanks again.

     ...maybe I'll try running a new report on the new machine to see if that jump starts things.

     yep. that did it. Odd. Whatever. Gremlins.

    Still, wondering if anybody has answers to my other, SSD questions. Might post with a different subject/title.

    Thank you.

    Yes, you can change it to be anywhere you want (including being in a different drive or even file share in another computer). Just open the SEao Toolkit and use the edit feature settings link in the right-hand task panel.
