I am new to Syncthing but plan to finally move to it after years with Nextcloud and Seafile.
One problem I encounter is where the
~ folder points to (I am not sure of the name, I saw “root folder” or “main folder” but will use
~ to disambiguate).
I read several posts and discussions about moving the “root/main folder” and the associated risks. The problem is that mu
config.xml (SyncTrayzor on Windows 10) does not have any mention of a folder path. I do see entries such as
<Folders> <Folder> <ID>default</ID> <IsWatched>false</IsWatched> <NotificationsEnabled>false</NotificationsEnabled> </Folder> <Folder> <ID>3qsvw-t7rqy</ID> <IsWatched>false</IsWatched> <NotificationsEnabled>false</NotificationsEnabled> </Folder> (...)
bit there are no paths anywhere (including for
Question 1: what is the proper name for
Question 2: where can I change it?
Question 3: I am in “pre-production” mode (I copied the actual data I need to synchronize, synchronized it betwen a few devices, etc. - but if I loose them I can recover) - does a chnage of
~ impacts existing folders?
In other words, if I have defined a folder to synchronize as
~ pointed to
c:\users\aaa\, will it be impacted in any way? This question is less about the risk for the data and more for the procedure to move.
