How to change where the server data is stored




I bought the game via Steam and noticed no matter where I install the game, it insists to save the server data  on my Windows drive.

Since my Windows is installed on a small SSD I'd rather just have the server data in the same folder (or at least SSD) as the installation.

Is this possible?

The server data is saved to the default "Zomboid" folder. If you are hosting a dedicated server you can change that location by editing the "StartServer.bat" file and adding 


To the parameters after Java, the new location has to be the full path to the location you are trying to save the files in, or have it be just -cachedir=.\Zomboid to save it in the same folder as the server is installed in.
