We are constantly having issues with our server running low on disk space, which is a problem in and of itself. However, it is causing a specific problem that I need help with.

I'm trying to print a rather large file from Adobe InDesign, which is freezing up because the printer is running off of the server. The server is running Windows Server 2003, and we've determined that the problem is most likely low disk space on the C drive.

My question is: how can I redirect the print spooler file to be on the D drive? The D drive has plenty of space, and if the printer could spool the jobs on that drive, then it could print my InDesign file!

Uhh an interesting dilemna you have.

Go to Start->Settings->Printers

Click File->Server Properties

Now Click the advanced tab and type in the path you wish to move the spool folder to.

Could one of the admins back me up on this, have I skipped a step?
