: Is it possible to move the directory currently in my Documents folder (~/Documents/Elder Scrolls Online) to a new location? I'm not moving the application install, but rather my own user files. I have seen it done on Windows
by using a symbolic link, and tried a similar process on my Mac
, but it did not work.
: I have an iMac (5K, Late 2014) and a MacBook Pro (15" Retina, Mid-2012) that both run ESO through Steam. I also have my Documents & Desktop set up to sync through iCloud. This means that the folders referenced above get synced through iCloud. This isn't a huge issue, but it 1) sometimes breaks AddOns, and 2) sometimes breaks Video settings. I am wanting to create local, un-synced versions of the folders on each Mac.
Just copying the folder to another location does not work, as ESO still references the folders in my Documents. If there is no such folder in my Documents, ESO creates a new one and starts from scratch—adjusting brightness settings, agreeing to terms of service, choosing a server, etc.
Similar issues happen when making an alias in my Documents that points to a local copy of the folders. Similar issues also occur when creating a symbolic link from my Documents folder to a local copy of the folders.
Has anyone been able to do this successfully on a Mac? TIA
