Alternative location for \Attachments folder

Tuesday, June 13, 2017



is it possible to set Attachments folder to other location than the default:


c:\Program Files (x86)\SpiraTest\Attachment


I need to store the attachments somewhere else. The c: drive is already full in my case (c: is dedicated for program files only and is limited size). It is obviously not safe to let further grow the attachments within System drive C: 


a) is it possible to define other path ?

b) replace original Attachments folder by windows shortcut pointing to another drive (e.g. d:\attachments) ?

c) move the whole SpiraTest folder to other drive?

Hi Josef

Yes this is very straightforward.

  1. Go to Administration > System > General Settings, you can change the Attachment folder path there.
  2. You don't need a shortcut, just change the setting
  3. The file path can be a physical drive or UNC path, but NOT a mapped drive, because those are Windows user profile specific.
