Hi, I have been searched this topic few times and found some discussion but after reading all material, it mix up and i am confusing that how to do that.

Can anyone explain the easiest way to do that?

1. Move all previous stored attachments to a folder from database.
2. from now, store all new attachments in same folder.

Thanks, then what about our old VB attachments? can we move them to same location where XF storing attachments or it already moved during migration? also please let me know the location of XF attachment storing area?

@Slavik
They would have been moved automatically during the import to /data/attachments and /internal_data/attachments
