User large existing directory on server for Library?

I have the seafile server running on a machine that holds est 700GB of Data.

Now I have imported some of the Data to the Seafile Server Library, which obviously duplicates space used on the drive.

Is it possible to just pint the seafile server to an existing directory?

I don’t think that this would work since seafile uses a git-like format to store data.

maybe as a featurewish: make a non syncable library that just serves a directory

Very unlikely to be implemented because it is incompatible with the architecture (of Seafile).

Why dont you upload the 700gb to the seafileserver and then delete the local files?

because the seafile library’s content is only a temporary content. a subsection of the fileservers content.
