    Hi Tung,

     

    You can do this by following these steps:

    1. Navigate to folder C:\users<username>\.TrimbleConnect
    2. Create new file: config.txt
    3. Add following line to it, change the path accordingly, note the double backslashes:
      {"FileCachePath" : "C:\\temp\\ConnectCache"}
    4. Open command line (cmd.exe), navigate to the same folder
    5. Run following command in command line:
       rename config.exe .config
    6. restart TCD
    7. Clear the default cache location: C:\users\<username>\.TrimbleConnect\.files
    This should do the trick.
    Best regards,

    Hi Yerko,

    The path where you need to have the .config file is this: (note: it depends of your Windows username)
    C:\Users\<UserName>\.TrimbleConnect

    Hopefully this helps.

    Hi Julien,

    You seem to have created file config.exe in the .TrimbleConnect folder.
    Navigate to that folder using Windows Explorer and right click the config.exe file and rename it to be config.txt, i.e. change the extension of the file to be .txt.
    Then you should be able to run the command in command line (cmd.exe):
    rename config.txt .config

    Hopefully this helps.

    Marko,
    Thanks for the steps. I've tried the steps and I can't seem to get the sync folder to change to a folder on my D: drive. Also since doing a recent update in the Sync window I'm not seeing any projects. I've signed out and signed back in a number of times and even did a reinstall to fix the installation. I can see all of my project when viewing them in a browser.

    Thanks for any help you can offer for my issues.
    -Todd

    Hi Marko.
    I couldn't understand step 3.

    Where do I enter the new path, for example, if I want the files to go to "D:\Trimble Connect".

    Hi Lucas,

     

    You need to create file .config to the original cache folder. That file should contain the following line:

    {"FileCachePath" : "D:\\Trimble Connect"}

     

    See my earlier text how to rename the .config file. i.e. start by creating file config.txt, add the correct text to it and then rename.

     

    Hopefully this helps.

     

    Best regards,
