I installed the latest beta and it may  be a coincidence but emby has been filling a sync folder with 10GB of something.  This folder is on my root disk which is not meant to hold data and is only 32GB.  I looked through the server management pages and could not find anywhere to set this folder's location.

 

I saw a management section called Download and Sync.  It had one strange entry with thousands of something.  I deleted that entry and hopefully my problem will go away.

 

What does Download and Sync mean?  I do all my downloading myself and put the downloads in my media folders.

Download and Sync is the feature that allows users to download content from your server. It sounds like one of your users may have queued up a bunch of requests for it and that's why your folders sync queue has a lot of items in it. Does that sound right?

Thanks for the description.  I'll check with my kids.  In any case, it has quit filling up my disk.

 

BTW, can I specify that sync folder be moved to somewhere else?

Yes, if it is indeed the folder sync plugin, check the settings for that plugin.
