How to move FS2020 install to another HD

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have had the need to move the FS 2020 install to another HD, I did the following and it worked:

1. copy all the Download (about 100Gb) Package folder to the new destination and rename it
2. uninstall Fly simulator (right click on the FS2020 icon and choose uninstall)
3. reinstall FS 2020 to the new destination
4. start FS 2020 -> it will begin downloading the updates (about 100Gb) -> create a new Download Package folder and name it as you like (i.e. "FSDownloads")
5. pause the download after about 2 min and exit the game
6.  delete the new download folder (the FSDownload you created with the new install) and rename the old one with the new name "FSDownload"
7. restart the game -> it will keep also all your configuration settings, included the joystick controls

Have fun
