Location of Plex "Data" folder when installed on Arch

Trying to get my media server up and running again. In order to size my partitions correctly though, I could do with knowing where Plex Stores its "Data Folder" as spoken about in this clip at 7:50.

Any ideas?

I've found this page, but just wanted to confirm that this was the folder talked about in the video.

Any info would be good.

The default location of Plex metadata files in Debian Linux is:

I found that in this article that explains how to mv & Copy Metadata and Index Data to new location.

Maybe look in /etc/sysconfig/plexmedia server

You could also try using the "whereis" cmd and the "locate" cmd; to tell you the location of all of the files that are associated with Plex. Read through the "Plex Arch WiKi" it may reveal what your looking for.

Hope that helps:-
