Is it a supported configuration to have the File Versioning folder outside of the Shared Folder?
E.g. If I have
~/Shared as my Shared Folder, can I set the File Versioning path to
~/.stversions and expect everything to be happy?
In theory you can, but why do you want to do that?
I’m looking at btrfs snapshotting the Shared Folder on a regular basis, and would rather the versioned files didn’t get caught up in the snapshots.
I know there’s some functionality overlap between snapshotting and file versioning - but sometimes it’s useful to have access to one or other.
There is no way to do this in the UI, but the versioner params map supports a custom path
under the “fsPath” key.
I am not exactly sure how this would look like in XML.
Thanks Audrius - I shall investigate further, given that it sounds like it’ll work in theory.
<param key="fsType" value="/foo/bar/baz">
For the record: initial findings look positive on this. I was able to set the path in the UI without any problem at all, resulting in this config key:
<param key="versionsPath" val="/volume1/Sync Backups/Test"></param>
Thanks for your guidance @AudriusButkevicius
