Is there clean way to move BOXI from one drive to another on the machine?
Unfortunately you would need to back things up, and then uninstall and do a complete reinstall on the new drive. There is no way to actually just move the installation because there are a ton of pointers to different existing directories in the current install. Wish I could give you a better answer...
Jon_Israel is absolutely correct - you cannot simply move a CABI install from one location to another.
Is there a particular reason why you are wanting to move the CABI install?
Yes. The drive that it was installed on happens to be the C: drive. The install is the largest consumer of that drive and I would like to move it to a secondary drive.

Thanks for the additional information.
You could follow Raghu.Rudraraju's advise about a junction.
Additionally, you could also try moving the CABI Filestore directory (this typically takes the most drive space) and reconfigure CABI to use the new FileStore location.
If disk space is the main challenge here, I would suggest going with the route of a junction. I think that's the least impacting solution.
See this link: Junction
Add a new disk volume with enough space, and mount it. say its called e: drive (enable 8.3 file name support there)
1) stop CABI (tomcat + server intelligence agent)
2) ensure no other CABI client programs (OR any other CA programs) are still using c:\program files (x86)\CA folder
3) Copy C:\program files (x86)\CA to E:\program files (x86)\CA (don't move, copy first, you can delete source folder later)
4) Rename C:\program files (x86)\CA to C:\program files (x86)\ORIGINAL_CA
5) Create a junction E:\program files (x86)\CA pointing to c:\program files (x86)\CA
Note: so, from now on, your c:\program files (x86)\CA is basically the e:\program files (x86)\CA
6) start up CABI make sure everything is still OK
7) delete C:\program files (x86)\ORIGINAL_CA to recover the space that was getting tied up.
Hope this helps
