ArcGIS 10.3.1 contains a new feature which allows a custom path to be set for the location of the local copy geodatabase created with the Create Local Copy command. By default, geodatabases created by the Create Local Copy command are placed in a service specific directory within the directory tree, ArcGIS\FeatureServiceLocalEdits, under the Documents folder of the user profile. When a custom path is set for local copy geodatabases, the service-specific directories are created in the specified path.
Two methods to update the computer registry are presented below. The first method is the least complicated.
Warning: The instructions below include making changes to essential parts of your operating system. It is recommended that you backup your operating system and files, including the registry, before proceeding. Consult with a qualified computer systems professional, if necessary. Esri cannot guarantee results from incorrect modifications while following these instructions; therefore, use caution and proceed at your own risk.
Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ESRI\Desktop10.3\ArcMap\Settings] "CreateLocalCopyPath"="C:\\myPath\\"
Alternatively, registry changes can be made manually.
