Increasing maximum memory used
By default Syncrify server is configured to use a maximum of 512 MB ram.
This number can be increased up to 1536 MB on a 32bit machine and up to 192 GB for
machines running 64bit operating systems. Following steps demonstrate how to increase
the default memory usage for Syncrify:
- Stop Syncrify if it is running
- Locate service.properties file in C:\Syncrify\config folder and open it in any editor like Notepad
- Look for a line that says:
- Change this line to represent the new value, for example:
This will make the maximum memory to 2GB. Note, you should not change the maximum value to 2GB if you are running on a 32bit machine.
- Save the file
- Open a Console Windows (DOS), change the current directory to C:\Syncrify by typing:
- Then, type the following:
This will uninstall the Windows service.
- Finally, type the following:
This will register Windows service again.
Do not allocate more than 1.5 GB ram on a 32bit version of Syncrify, even if you are using a 64bit OS. Allocating
a higher number will result in errors during startup.
Consider using a 64bit version of Syncrify if you need to allocate more memory.

You have to set this in the run.sh file on a Mac!! Its in the Syncrify.app directory! On linux change the run.sh!
