In citrix files, you have the option in the beta features to make folder available offline, can we set the local drive/folder where these files are stored. very often systems have a small SSD as a boot drive and a larger magnetic disk for data, it would be helpful if we can specify the location of the offline files like you can in sharefile sync.

Hi,
You can configure the custom cache location using the GPO settings. That location would be used to store all the Citrix Files related cache and databases.

Computer Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Citrix Files --> Cache Location

Note:- By changing this path, the user need to remark the files for offline and it will be re-synched. Might also lose any pending offline changes that are not yet uploaded. (It will act as a fresh install), but this is just one time thing.

Regards,

Hi Grahame, unfortunately there is no option on Citrix Files for Mac to specify an alternate location for the cache.
