Is it possible to save extracts to a drive other than the Tableau Server installation drive?


  • Tableau Server
  • Extracts


It is not possible to save extracts to a separate drive from the one where Tableau Server is installed. 

If disk space is a constraint, Tableau Server can be moved to a different drive. For more information, see Moving Tableau Server to a Different Drive in the Tableau Knowledge Base.
If Tableau Server is in a distributed environment, it is possible to move the Tableau Server Repository to a worker machine. For more information, see Install and Configure Worker Servers in Tableau Help.
