    Is it possible to change the upload files location folder?
    Reason why I am asking is in v3 we had files (over 4k ) stored outside public folder on the server and there is another system that is also using the files. So instead having duplicated files for amember and another system can amember data\upload folder be changed?

    You can remove standard folder data/upload and do symlink upload in folder data. this symlink shoud point to your other folder with files eg. ln -s upload ~/my-files. I assume you use linux on your server.

    Sounds doable , you sure amamber will "see" the files from symlinked folder when I try to add files to products?

    Yes, I am sure. Why not? I tested it on my local install and it works perfect as expected.
