    Default Choose the synchronizing local folder

    Hi everybody,

    I'm currently a user of zimbra desktop for several zimbra mail client accounts.
    I'd like to install an account that has more than 10 Gb datas !

    Since I 'm using a 64 Gb System SSD Disk for my OS, i'd like to choose another folder than the classical "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Zimbra\Zimbra Desktop\store" in order to synchronize zimbra accounts in an other disk than the system disk, or simply desactivate synchronization for this big account.

    Is there a solution ?

    Thanks a lot for replies.

    I've found a solution to my problem using the DOS command mklink.
    For people who have the same problem, I detail my solution here.

    1.Install ZD and start it first. It will create the registry entry and the zd data folders in "C:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Zimbra"
    Do not add a new account, just stop ZD after the first start.
    2.Stop also the zdclient.exe and the zdesktop.exe process through task manager. If you prefer, you can restart your computer.
    3.Create the new folder where you want to synchronize your zimbra account datas (ex : D:\Zimbra) and copy in it all the folder, subfolders and files of "C:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Zimbra".
    4.Delete the folder "C:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Zimbra"
    5.Start CMD
    6.Launch the command : mklink /J "C:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Zimbra" "D:\Zimbra"
    7.Restart ZD
    8.Create your accounts and enjoy !

    Works great. Thanks for the detailed instructions. I followed them precisely and it worked first time... Windows 8 Pro, Zimbra 7.2.2. Thanks very much.
