Tonido Sync Folder locations can be changed manually on Tonido versions 2.34 and above by editing the configuration XML file. We only suggest doing this if you are comfortable editing files.

How to Change

  1. To change the locations, first make sure all the current sync2 operations are stopped.
  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 syncserverconfig.xml file. For example, if your new sync folder location is D:\TonidoSync, replace the syncfolderlocation DEFAULT to D:\TonidoSync
  4. Then re-enable the Sync2 application.
  5. Test whether sync is happening correctly before removing the original location
