Syncthing directory on shared volume.

Hi all,

I have a computer that dual boots Windows and Ubuntu, and currently each OS has its synced directories stored in the default location. This to me seems inefficient, since I have every file twice on the hard drive, and whenever I switch OS any changes have to be downloaded again. I thought about configuring a shared volume and using that as the location for the Syncthing folder on both operating systems.

Will the Windows Syncthing install get confused if the Ubuntu one synchronises files, and vice versa, or will everything work fine?

Many thanks

They’ll get confused. If you share the synced files you must also share the index database.
