Oops - installed P3Dv5 on my HDD, not my SSD - What to do?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Title says it all. I just went to install an addon plane and the install package directed me to my C drive - my HDD. I thought it was a mistake, that it was just assuming that's where my v5 install was. But no, that's where I installed it.

Questions:

How bad is it vs. having it installed on my SSD? I'm assuming performance is better on the SSD (not to mention the fact that the whole reason I have an SSD is for gaming).

If I want to get it on my D drive (SSD), can I just copy and paste the whole P3Dv5 folder over? I'm assuming the answer to that is no. Which means that I have to uninstall and re-install the whole thing, correct?

It wouldn't really be that big a deal, I still have the download and I haven't installed any addons..

Advice appreciated. Thanks!
