Default location of storage is given below. To change the default location on a desktop, run Sync in config mode



C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync\
(will be Resilio Sync Service if you run Sync as service)

Sync running as service with LocalService: 
C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync Service 
Sync running as service with Local System: 
C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync Service

Mac: /Users/user_name/Library/Application Support/Resilio Sync

Linux: ./sync near binary file or the current directory from which you launch Sync, or the path defined as "storage_path" if you run Sync in config mode

Linux packages:
/var/lib/resilio-sync if launched as default rslsync user. 
/home/username/.config/resilio-sync/storage if launched as current user.

Seagate:/media/internal_1/rainbow/resilio-sync-xxxxxxxx/data/.sync Note that "xxxxxxx" after "resilio-sync-" stand for the container ID which is generated randomly, so it'll be different on each NAS. Also, instead of 'internal_1" you may have "internal_2", etc. based on naming convention.
