Hi Fernando,

You could always create a linked folder in your App folder:

Hi,

I find this solution is a little tricky. There isn't a native solution.

Thanks

Hi xia,

There might be a change to the Settings.ini that you could make in:

C:\Users\your username\Documents\Qlik\Sense

I'll let you know if I find one,  but this is they way I use if I'm storing qvfs on a usb stick and using them of multiple machines.

Hi Anya,

You can try renaming the content folder or moving it to its new location, then run the mklink command :

For example:

I renamed my content folder to Content_original, then ran the following command:

mklink /D "C:\Users\Mark ODonovan\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Content" "C:\Users\Mark ODonovan\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Content_original"

Hope this helps.
