installing FS2004 on 2nd hard drive

Recommended Posts

Guest Tingoose

I know this has been asked in the past but I've searched and can't find the threads. Does installing FS2004 on a second internal HD, (the non-OS hard drive) have any negative impact on the performance of the sim? Any feedback gratefully received.

I just did this recently. It eliminated my stutters. I still have slowdowns in heavy scenery and weather, but no stutters whatsoever. For me, that's a huge improvement.

None that I've seen. I've always had my FS on the D drive. Some even put the scenery addons on a different drive than the FS drive. A lot of options available.Jim D.

no probs at all. I run all my games on a seperate h/drive. It's better this way as this will ensure that no gaming files are mixed up with the operating system. Performance wise, they run much better.

This is what I was wondering about specifically. It seems like a good idea to keep gaming files on a separate HD from the OS. With all the many addon installations that most people make to the main FS installation it seems to make sense. Thanks for your comment.

just make sure that u regularly defrag the hardrive for optimal performance. i would advise to use either ultimate defrag, tuneup utilities 2009 or smart defrag.
