    BACKING UP P3D v4.4 & Registry

    Thanks Ray. All understood. I use a separate 1tb ssd for all p3d stuff I think will feel the benefit. I can see me wishing it was 2tb this time next year! I would respond to your comment re os drive failure but I feel that would be tempting fate on my part..... Thanks again

    BACKING UP P3D v4.4 & Registry

    Thanks for all the advice. Much appreciated. I have 1tb free on one of my hdds so I think I'll back up both my ssds to that - the total is more or less 750gb. And if I understand correctly, if a disk craps out or the software develops a problem it's simply a matter of restoring the entire folder system from the backup file either to the existing disk or a new one? So if I wanted to put P3D et al on another drive, say a 2tb ssd because I've added more software and need more space, I extract the backup file to the new disk and 'voila', job done? I assume I'll need to make a new disk the same drive letter as the old one? Also I think I'm worrying about the registry unnecessarily - that does not get affected if a disk develops an error?

    BACKING UP P3D v4.4 & Registry

    Hi All Now that I [finally] have a smooth running flightsim, I'm planning to backup or to be more precise, copy my P3D root directory installation which comprises P3D+ORBX+OTHER SCENERY & AIRPORT ADD-ONS from the likes of Aerosoft, FS Addons and UK2000, from the ssd on which it currently resides to an internal hdd. I also have other add-ons handled by the xml method via Lorby's excellent add-on manager which pose no concern in this respect. The SSD also holds in separate directories FS Pilots mesh, REX Skyforce & WWA, MyTraffic 06a and a whole bunch of Return to Misty Moorings stuff. I've read a previous post from 2016 in the forums related to this, but no mention is made of the registry. I suspect I will need to make a copy of my registry also? Surely some of the add-on programs I've installed to the P3D root directory write to the registry? Or if I use a back-up tool, this is taken care of automatically? Could some kind soul advise, please? Thanks.

    FLT files - do they work in P3D?

    no luck. i found a [dead] link to a fxml to flt converter on pete dowson's page but that's about it.

    FLT files - do they work in P3D?

    aeronauta/jabloom- thanks for the help. you learn something new every day being a flightsimmer! the software seems to be working just fine but I will try to find that conversion utility. I'm thinking it's got to be better in the correct P3D format, right?

    FLT files - do they work in P3D?

    whoops, my bad. could you tell me why these files are there, please? the folder is installed by uk2000 and there's a few wx and save files also, so i'm assuming they're there for a reason? i've only flown a couple of flights yet there's FLT files for each airfield in the folder.

    FLT files - do they work in P3D?

    Hi All I've installed UK2000 VFR Airfields scenery into P3D v4.4 and see that the 'situations' folder for each volume contains flight plans in FLT format. They don't open in Plan G or P3D so i'm hoping there's a way to convert/use them. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    kiki-fwiw i sent some feedback to amd. i got a response from their customer care saying they would pass it on to the relevant dept. fingers and toes are crossed.

    kiki-glad to hear that! the only thing i see we lose is the amd add on package to change global and game settings, vsr et al. a small price to pay. let's hope the next driver release fixes this. and thanks for starting this thread.

    Simbol - SUCCESS!! Can't thank you enough. Kiki-I uninstalled the AMD Software entry in programs and features, this removed all the amd package and rebooted. Grateful thanks to all others that gave their time to help me.

    d'oh!😣 Simbol- I have opened programs and features and there are 2 AMD entries - Ryzen Master and AMD software [that links to a 78mb BIN64 file] and no Radeon entries either. Seems like I do not have the driver correctly installed?

    whoops Jim v-sorry. I found the other dll.xml in app data> roaming. Is this to be renamed or turned 'off' and then rebuilt by p3d?
