Change Attachment Storage to Local

Mont IT I'm New Here May 12, 2022

I am following these directions to switch from DB to local attachment storage:

and the Attachment storage admin page shows 

Attachments storage:Database (Deprecated)

However, on the screen for changing this, the "Locally in Confluence home directory" radio button is greyed out.  Is there some other setting or config I need to change to enable this?

@Mont IT Welcome to the Atlassian community

Can you share a screenshot of the issue?

Yes, so here is the Attachment Storage settings page:


An when I select edit, it shows using DB storage, however, I cannot select "Locally in Confluence home directory":


This is in Atlassian Confluence 7.17.2, which I upgraded from a  Atlassian Confluence 6.14.1 installation.  The original 6.14.1 install seems to allow me to select the option.
