Is it possible to move the BT Cloud sync folder

Go to solution

I want to move my BTCloud sync folder to a different drive rather than under my user name on C:.  Is this possible and if so, how is it done?

Shame the latest version doesn't allow you to move the sync folder. Stuck on C:\users\name\BT Cloud

I find the same problem, Carey.

Has anyone found a way to change the folder, or does this need to be carried out by a reinstallation (and selecting a folder other than the default)?

I wasn't able to use BT Cloud as my sync folder as it was deemed to have been selected as a backup folder. So I had to create a folder, BT Cloud (1), copy the folders I wanted to sync to it (including My Documents, for which I needed to set a pointer so that it would be the default Documents folder).  You could possibly set My Documents as the sync folder directly (in BT Cloud Preferences) but then all documents in that folder would be synced, and nothing else.

I think this is the answer everyone seems to be looking for!

The BT cloud folder has to be done from within the settings though.
