Description

I would prefer a customizable location for the user files, now - as far as I can see - hardcoded to {installdir}\files.

This would give us two rewards:

  • The files don't need to be moved to a new location with every update of Redmine.
  • While redmine could sit in a "software" region of the system (On Win systems C:\Programs), the files can be rest in peace on a separate data partition (on Win systems i.e D:\files), allowing i.e. separate backup and defrag cycles.

I don't expect that to make its way into the UI, but it could be somewhere in the config files on the server.

There already exists a setting named attachments_storage_path in configuration.yml (see source:trunk/config/configuration.yml.example#L93) for that purpose.

Small additional note: already exists is a bit misleading since this is a new feature that will be available with upcoming Milestone 1.2.0 (to be released on 2011-04-30), see feature request #1236 (and also Patch #1511).
(Sorry, my profile permissions are standard/basic... If I could, I would have linked this duplicating ticket to #1236 to enhance ticket browsing...)
