Sync to outside /home

I’m running out of space in /home

but I can’t change the directory in the GUI to an externally mounted drive.

I can’t symlink and mounting into /home would be messy so what should I do?

source machine is OSX destination is Ubuntu.

One way to do it is: Remove the folder from Syncthing. Move the data to a new location. Re-add the folder with the same folder ID, but new path. That’s usually easy because you can do it from the prompt that pops up when the other device still offers sharing it.

A bit more efficient (doesn’t rebuild the database), but not as user-friendly: Stop Syncthing. Edit the config.xml file to change to the new path. Start Syncthing, it should pick up the files from the new location without any additional work.
