Hard disk is full and you want PAW on the other drive

Planning Analytics 2.0.4
Planning Analytics Workspace 30
Microsoft Windows 2016 Server

You have installed docker, but before you install PAW, you realize that you do not have the needed 50 GB of free space on C drive. How do I tell docker to create the images on the D drive?

Create a folder d:\docker\images
Stop the docker service
Open Notepad and enter this
“data-root”: “d:\\docker\\images”
save the file as c:\programdata\docker\config\daemon.json

docker1 docker2
Start the docker service

Any previous created images in C:\ProgramData\docker\containers\ are not moved.

Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

Download a working docker-compose-Windows-x86_64.exe file;

Invoke-WebRequest "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.21.0/docker-compose-Windows-x86_64.exe" -UseBasicParsing -OutFile $Env:ProgramFiles\docker\docker-compose.exe

Rename it to docker-compose.exe and copy it to the c:\program files\docker folder.
