Specify Snapshot Folder

SQL Server 2000

The Specify Snapshot Folder dialog box appears in the Configure Publishing and Distribution Wizard and in the Create Publication Wizard.

When specifying the snapshot folder in the Configure Publishing and Distribution Wizard, the path you specify will be used as the default snapshot folder for all Publishers enabled in this wizard (the default snapshot folder does not apply to Publishers that are later enabled using Publisher and Distributor Properties).

When specifying the snapshot folder in the Create Publication Wizard, the path you specify will be used as the snapshot folder for the Publisher on which you are creating a publication.

If you use a folder location that requires a login with administrative privileges on the Distributor (for example, a folder located on C$), the share might not be accessible by agents running on other computers, such as agents for pull subscriptions. Prior to implementing replication, test that the replication agents will be able to connect to the snapshot folder by logging on under the security account that will be used by the agents and then try to access the snapshot folder.

Enter the path or use the browse button (...) to specify the location where you want snapshot files stored.
