I need to change the location to which attachments are to be saved for my JIRA instance from:
C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA\data\attachments
to another partition on the same disk volume:
Please help me how to do this.
The attachments path was fixed in an earlier release of JIRA for security and sanity reasons. You can't change it easily.
The standard recommendation is to use directory mapping or links to say "when I use my <long path>, actually read/write <somewhere else>" at an Operating System level - JIRA doesn't really care, it looks to the path it has been given, and the OS handles the rest.
This is a doddle in Unix - use a symbolic link, but it's a royal pain in Windows because the underlying file system is, at best, primitive and inflexible. A windows system administrator should be able to set up a link or mapping (sorry, I can't remember the real name of this process), but it is an advanced function, and if I remember correctly only works on NTFS and better (if you're still on FAT, you've had it)
