How to change shared folder?

System: Windows 10
I have been successfully syncing to a shared folder (in Onedrive) to share my data between two windows computers, and this has been working great.

I now want to change (move) the sync location to a new, different folder in Onedrive (to take advantage of the new onedrive personal vault. However, when I go to "File..|Sync Settings", I see no way to change the folder used for sync. (It shows my current folder, but it's grayed out and there's no way to change it.)
Any suggestions for how to change this?

    ok, I think I answered my own question. I did the following steps:
    1. Go to "File..|Sync Settings", set it to not sync. Press 'ok'
    2. Quit moneydance
    3. Delete the old synced folder (this is for safety)
    4. Relaunch Moneydance
    5. Go to "File..|Sync Settings", and point it to the desired new folder location. Press 'ok'

    Of course, I will need to repeat a variant of the above on the other computers that I wish to sync.
