The insync db file has gotten larger than 1 GB. My ssd drive has limited space, and I was wondering if there is a way to reduce the file size or if I could move it somehow to another drive?
I am using Windows 10.
You can move the dbs folder to another location with the help of a symlink:
- Quit Insync
- move the “dbs” folder from “%appdata%\Insync\dbs” to say “D:\Insync\dbs”
- Open command prompt as an administrator
- Run the following command: MKLINK /D “%appdata%\dbs” “D:\Insync\dbs”
- Start Insync
@dipesh, can you add some info how to reduce db size?
➜ ~ du -hs ~/.config/Insync ~/insync/
➜ ~ insync get_account_information
