Autodesk 360 Files and Limited Hard Drive Space

October 14, 2014 By Bryan Fields Leave a comment

To start with, I am a big fan of Cloud Services and find them amazing. It’s nice to have access to my entire photo library, anywhere, anytime. Having access to my files, on any device, makes working on them so easy. I've used a variety of services for cloud storage over more than a decade, including Dropbox, which I tried as soon as it came out and adopted for all of my personal files.

For CAD, it's Autodesk 360! Integrated within most of the Autodesk applications, Autodesk 360 give you access to cloud storage. It easily integrates with Windows, so you can add files just as easily as putting them on a thumb drive. Autodesk 360 is FREE with limited storage space, but with the Autodesk Subscription, you get 25 gigs of storage space for all of your data needs.

Autodesk 360 sync's data locally to your machine. However, the Autodesk 360 application does not allow you to change the location of where files are synced locally. With 25 gig subscription based storage, this is where a problem can occur. Many users now have Solid State Hard Drives (SSD). These are not as large as traditional hard drives, so where we put files can be a concern. Since my C: Drive is a SSD and my D: Drive is a traditional drive with more space, I want my Autodesk 360 data to sync to my D: Drive.

So, how do I move my Autodesk 360 files to the D: Drive? The answer is simple... Use a Symbolic Link. The Symbolic Link is basically a folder shortcut, pushing data to another location. Computer applications will see the files in one location when they are really somewhere else.
