How to put users’ homes on shared folders

Syncplify.me Server! version: 4.0.5+

Some of our Syncplify.me Server! users prefer to store their users’ home folders (actually VFSs as of version 4.0) on a different machine via shared folders. For example, instead of having your user’s home point to C:\SFTPData\MyUser you want to have it point to \\10.5.123.9\SFTPData\MyUser.

This is a perfectly reasonable and fairly common request. As of version 4.0, Syncplify.me Server! provides a variety of methods to accomplish this goal.

VFSonthenet

Once the VFS is created, you can proceed and create a User profile that uses the newly created VFS as its “home”. And this is where you have many options.

Maintenance release: Syncplify.me Server! v3.1.24.64

We have just released version 3.1.24.64 of our Syncplify.me Server!

This new maintenance release introduces a measure to deal with non-standard client softwares that send paths with multiple slashes (ex: ////documents//mydoc.xls). Even though this is a client-originated protocol violation, we needed to make sure to manage it correctly on the server-side in order for the client to be able to reach the intended file. Now all paths are correctly normalized.
