Transfer Flight Sim software between drives

Recommended Posts

I am running Prepar3D V4 with PMDG 737,777, Active Sky, and orbx scenery on Windows 10. I have a SSD250G and a 1,8T Hard drive. The SSD is drive C so all programs default installation to that drive unless you specify to install on D which is the hard drive. My problem is as I've added scenery to my orbx software I'm  now running low on memory on the SSD. Is there a way to transfer my programs over to the hard drive without totally deleting them and reinstalling them?

 

Thanks

John Swanson

Unfortunately you can only make a backup of orbx sceneries, you can’t clonate planes, .... . Before uninstalling the pmdg 777 and 737, make sure you disabled them from the fmc.

See this thread.  https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/544675-spreading-a-p3d-install-across-multiple-drives/

You can move existing sceneries or install new ones on another drive using the P3D xml scenery library.  No need to move what you have now.
