I want to store data on another partition, how to do it?
you can start Zcash as "zcashd -datadir=" and then the location for the files!
Thanks for this solution.
Is it possible to somehow specify this option in the configuration files to make it the default?
that I have not tried! I've always seen it passed in on the command line, and was wondering the same thing myself last night while working on an app that uses datadir=
Ah, it seems like
-datadir= is the exception for the zcash.conf. Bitcoin has the same thing... only bitcoin-qt (which calls bitcoind) can save a configuration to start the client with the modified directory location each time.
zcash.conf is paradoxical since
datadir is the directory in which
zcash.conf is stored.
$ cp -rp ~/.zcash/* /new_dir
$ rm -rf ~/.zcash
$ ln -s /new_dir ~/.zcash
$ chown -h your_user:your_group ~/.zcash
