I’m a new user and was able to find a 2-year-old post on this subject, but no clear resolution.
Is it possible to have much/most/all of LOCAL installed on a different partition in order to minimize space used on the C-drive? Mostly, I’m interested in keeping the sites away from the C drive.
I’m not quite done setting up WordPress, waiting to see whether there’s a way to do it.
Sorry that its not very clear. Unfortunately there isn’t a really good way to do this in the app yet. However, if you are looking to save the most space on your C drive, you could consider relocating the Virual Box disk. (named
disk.vmdk). That is what takes up the most space will make the most difference. We have a few posts from @clay in the forums how to accomplish this…
- Is it possible to move the disk.vmdk file and relink it to Local by Flywheel
- My system is on different partition
Thank you very much, andypeters!
I now figured that I could specify a path where the database (I’m assuming) and the WP setup reside. That should probably be good enough.
Could you please tell me where the Local files are stored? I don’t see them under C;\programs files or programs files (x86).
