Well when I first installed my FS9 on my computer a few years ago I put it on my C drive. Tonight I just taught myself that my D drive is much larger than my C drive, I had a problem installing a plane into my FS folder today because I did not have enough room in my C drive. I made enough room by putting some files in the D drive and deleting them in the C drive. But here is my question. Since my D drive is much large and has almost all of its space free can I just move my FS9 File to my D drive? Will anything happen? I cant afford to lose some of my downloads so I want to be 100% before I try anything. If I just moved FS9 to my D drive that I wont have to do anything else and the program will run normally? If there is a risk of something going wrong I dont want to take it. So is it as easy as I think?
Thanks

There shouldn't be a problem but I would back up those important addons just in case something goes wrong.

It'll take a while though! 4-5 GB +  Big grin

Wouldn't you get problems if files aren't where the registry and config files think they are?

Yeh it wont work, I tried it a few months ago, well about 8 months ago trying to move mine over to my partition, didnt work so i reinstalled the core fs files, then moved my freeware planes over, reinstalled payware ac and was good to go.

Took about 2 hours.

Sorry about that.  Smile

I learned that about Windows the hard way, having previously been able to move applications around very easily on the Amiga.

OR...

You could move your entire FS folder over, and use the clever little tool from Flight1, (Clicky)

Point it to the new location of your FS9.exe and away you go.

Off topic and sorry but the question has been answered.

Would I be able to copy the entire 'C' onto a slave drive and then make that the master ?

Alright it looks like I wont try to do it. I took some files off my C and put them in my almost empty D drive though.

The game will work, You just cant pick the folder up and put it in your other HDD. You have to reinstall it to there.

No offense, but many of us don't consider it a "game". With so many payware add-ons, VATSIM, etc., it's a simulation.
