Change Sonarr's userdata location [solved!]

After the latest update I briefly saw a message saying that Sonarr’s userdata was going to be changed to /mnt/dietpi_userdata. But Sonarr is still looking into /root/.config/NzbDrone for the userdata. How do I change this setting? Thanks!

EDIT: I fixed it replacing the /root/.config/NzbDrone folder with a symlink pointing to /mnt/dietpi_userdata/sonarr.

Hmm, we have to investigate. Usually /mnt/dietpi_userdata/sonarr should contain the global data/configs, while ~/.config/NzbDrone should contain/allow user specific adjustments. So you might want to have ~/.config/NzbDrone as it is and generally there should be nothing game changing set without your actual hands on.

But let me check, what is actually safe there and where things are changed, when changing settings via web ui.

Thank you for looking into this. Do you mean Sonarr’s UI? For what I gathered looking for a solution, the location of Sonarr’s userdata can only be changed accesing its sqlite database, not through the UI. That location is defined by the programmers according to the OS. I’m sorry if I misunderstood you.

How do I change the default location of My Topics folder? The folder is in a place where I dont want it and MyInfo saves new topics to that folder. I need to change that default location and cant find any help topic on how to do that.

Hi Michael,

Please can you paste results of the following command:

cat /etc/systemd/system/sonarr.service
