Question Need to migrate DCS to new drive

Hi all,
Currently DCS is on a 250GB SSD (drive letter D). I purchased a 2TB SSD for DCS use only and wish to keep the 250GB drive and its assigned drive letter. The reason is all programs (except Windows 10) are installed on the 250GB and I don't wish to go through re-installation of dozens of programs. Drive C is an SSD used for Windows exclusively. Drive E is a 4TB SSD Hybrid used for all games but DCS.

My ideal outcome would be:
Drive C: no change
Drive D: removal of DCS
Drive E: no change
Drive F: new drive with DCS only

Any tips for achieving this transfer are much appreciated. Cheers!

Drag-and-drop the entire program folder.
Run a repair. You might have to redo Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts, and fix the program icons.. but that's exactly what I did a year ago.
No problems, probably the most painless thing ever.


I'd also suggest deactivating all your modules, then reactivate all of them after you move the files... just in case.

randomTOTEN,

That IS quite painless. I was envisaging re-activations and re-installation, etc. Thanks for the guidance. This will be fun!
