Default Need To Make Space...

Just discovered my ssd is getting full and I need to move stuff. Seeing my "Saved Games" folder to another drive would open up several GB. What file do I need to go into to point the install to this new location (it's been awhile...)? Thanks!

Open Window's File Manager, right click on "Saved Games" and select "Properties" (if you dont see the folder, open up your User folder, the one with your name)

Click on the "Location" tab, click on "Move" ... choose the destination location and then Windows will relocate the folder and its contents ... while keeping the path "/User/your-user/Saved Games" intact.

No, the procedure above is for Windows' special folders: "My Documents", "My Pictures", "Saved Games", etc.
