Create vault view on second drive

In my company, we have a vault that is mounted on the primary hard drive root by everyone.

So, every SolidWorks project has references to C:\VaultName\ directory.

I would like to keep this path but my primary hard drive is full.

To solve the problem:

  • I unmounted the vault view (and delete all cached files and folders)
  • I assigned a mount point folder path (C:\VaultName\) to a secondary drive

Assign a mount point folder path to a drive

  • I tried to remount the vault view to the primary hard drive root

But unfortunately, SolidWorks PDM does not only check if the folder's view is empty,

it also check if the folder exists: "The folder C:\VaultName already exists"


Please, how can I resolve my problem?

Thank you for your help.
