    New Copmuter : Which files should I transfer?

    Hi! Sorry I tried to find the answer with the search but didnt get the Full answer…

    I just installed DCS on a new computer (fresh install, everything good). I want to copy now my SAVED GAMES files from the old computer to the new in order to get my old key bindings etc… I know that the content of the config/input folder is where the peripherals (HOTAS) configurations are stored (and I am aware of the numbering/naming thing that one has to be careful with in order for Windows to recognize the right device).

    But!: I am not so sure about all the rest of the SAVED GAMES/DCSopenbeta folder??? Should I copy and paste the content of the whole folder? Which files should I pick in order to get all my old SNAPVIEWS, LABELS, KEYS, etc…

    Thanks so much

        copy your files with robocopy according to the following example:


        robocopy "F:\User\xxxx\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta" "C:\Users\xxxx\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta" /e /copyall

        insert your name for xxxx and adjust the drive letters. with robocopy and the information below, you can ensure that all attributes remain available. Start cmd as administrator and enter the line. Then I w.ould delete the contents of "fxo" and "metashaders2". Before you can transfer the files, DCS must be started once.

          I have this document that explain mosts of the User Folders of DCS.
          Hopefully it will clear out most of your questions.
