Hello,

 

Is there a way to move CloudPart.xxxxxxxx folder, where metadata and cache is stored from one location to another within the same machine without destroing and recreating entire drive?

In my case - from P:\CloudPart.xxxxx to Q:\CloudPart.xxxxx ..?

Detaching the drive, and re-attaching it will let you specify a new cache location. 

 

That is the approved method of handling this.

Any way of doing it while the CloudDrive has a month's worth of write cache data in it?

Would like to know this as well.  With the constant Amazon turtles I have no idea how long it will be before my "To Upload" will be at 0 allowing me to detach the drive.

I am not 100% certain, but I believe that you can manually move the cache around.  You do need to stop the StableBit CloudDrive service before doing so (I'd recommend setting it's startup type to "disabled" and rebooting). 

 

Once the data is moved over (it needs to be moved from root directory to root directory), you'd want to take the older disk offline (aka, remove it). And then you can start the StableBit CloudDrive Service. It *should* pick up the cache folder and allow you to continue using it.
