I’m trying to set up Syncthing on my Windows 11 machines, one desktop, and one laptop using SyncTrazor windows GUI. It works fine, I’ve got a couple of folders in My Documents shared from my desktop but when they sync to the laptop, they go into the user directory (C:\Users\USERID\Sync<FolderName>).
This is not reasonable. You keep documents in your document folder, not under the User ID. I WANT to have them synced to the same folder structure as the desktop. It makes things easier to find.
I’ve tried changing the path in the advanced settings. This ended badly. The sync simply STOPPED until I reverted it back.
I’ve searched and seen a few suggestions about changing the config.xml file. However, there is nothing obvious here, at least for someone unfamiliar with this kind of file. It has no comments to help.
How do I change the location? I only want to sync a few folders of documents I use regularly on both computers. There has to be a way to do this.
Trouble is, the config.xml file does not have the folders listed in it. Nothing to indicate where I should edit.
Also, no indication of how it should be “correctly formatted”. I would assume, the full path (i.e.: C:\Users\USERID\Documents\Vault) but that path would not work under the advanced settings.
I tried that initially, and the browse option was unclickable. The app would not let me change the location to place the folder.
However, I just redid all three folders in question (deleted and re-synced) and it worked. I’m not sure what happened in between, but it worked.
