I noticed that the package repository for Octopus Deploy is set by default to C:\Octopus\Packages and I've not found a single setting which allows me to override the path. I looked in the OctopusServer.config, but the packagesdirectory is not mentioned there
We prefer having a separate partition for Octopus Deploy (ie D:), so we can avoid having Octopus and the OS to compete for disk space.

The url /app#/configuration/settings/server-folders points to an overview, with a save button that cannot be used.

    Hi Harald,

    Thanks for getting in touch! We have a section in our documentation around moving the built-in package repository directory here.

    This includes a PowerShell script to stop the server, change the directory, and restart the server (to re-index the packages).

    I hope this helps! Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions. :)

    Best regards,
