How to extend Alfresco contentstore space by adding physical/virtual hard drive?

Hi all,

We have an Alfresco Content services 5.2 instance running on a Windows 2016 Virtual Server where the available space capacity is declining very quickly and we will run out of space soon.

Is there any article to read or any idea about how to extend our contentstore  by adding a second virtual hard drive? Or it will be required to migrate the entire contentstore into a much larger hard drive?

Thank you in advance, any thoughts/solutions provided will be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Nikos

Using the Enteprise edition you can add a new contentstore enabling the Multiple Content Store selector:

If you are using the Community Edition you don't have any other solutions, so you should migrate everything in a larger storage.
