Change folder location?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I have a doubt here; is it possible to change the location of an already sync'ed folder?

Like, i have 'C:\Users\blah\BTSync' completely sync'ed but i need to move it to 'D:\BTSync'.

Is it possible?

Thanks for the help! :)

You would need to do the following:

1) Copy/save the current secret for your "C:\Users\blah\BTSync" folder

2) Remove the folder from BitTorrent Sync

3) Manually copy/move the data from "C:\Users\blah\BTSync" to "D:\BTSync"

4) Add "D:\BTSync" to Sync using the secret you previously copied/saved

for the impatient among us: on large Folders it will stay on "FolderXY 0 MB in 0 files" for quite a while until it has completely received the FileList etc.

So give it time!

what is this "secret" you speak of? I don't see an option anywhere to show a secret? Is it a text string? or you mean the sync folder inside the main folder? 

 

thanks!

@box0220 - this is a very old thread - the last post was over 15 months ago, and a lot has happened since then!

 

"secrets" as they were in earlier versions of Sync are now know as "keys" in Sync 1.4
