How to Change

  1. To change the locations, first shutdown Tonido Sync Client.
  2. If you have been already synching files in the default location, make sure to copy that folder to the new location. 
  3. Then replace the DEFAULT string with the full path to that folder in the syncclientconfig.xml file. For example, if your new sync folder location is D:\TonidoSync, replace the syncfolderlocation DEFAULT to D:\TonidoSync
  4. Then restart the Tonido Sync Client application.
  5. Test whether sync is happening correctly before removing the original location
