Yes, there is a way to relocate RW files to different location on your computer using symbolic links, which is feature of the OS. It is completely transparent for the program. I have been running this setup for more than two years on the backup computer, which has spinning disks. The details are in this thread:

Do not use any cloud storage for live data, the background synch mechanisms might cause issue with the data and RW is not designed to work this way. You can't share same DB between two instances, the only way is to make backup/resoters or use the "still working fine" online synchronization service.

Storing your backup file to online cloud storage is fine.

The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.
