The client stores important settings in two configuration files called PowerFolder.config and PowerFolder-Folder.config. On this page we will explain some of the settings in the client configuration files.
Editing the client configuration file
The client configuration file can be edited with a simple text editor of your choice.
Please note: Make sure you stopped the client before editing the configuration file, otherwise your changes might get overwritten!
Location of the client configuration file
Depending on the operating system the client is running on, the client configuration file can be found in one of the directories below:
Please note: On Windows make sure your file browser is enabled to show hidden/system files!
On Windows open your file explorer and enter %APPDATA%\PowerFolder in the address bar to navigate to the config directory.
To change the local directory on a system not running a graphical user interface (e.g. Windows Server as a system service or Linux server) simply edit the corresponding lines in the PowerFolder-Folder.config file.
