Moving all of my MX Simulator stuff from one drive to another?

Postby Calciferous » Thu May 04, 2017 2:14 am

My C: Drive is pretty much out of space with all of the tracks I download, but my other drive has well over 500 GB left. How do I safely move all of my MX SImulator stuff (AKA what folders and where to find them?) from one drive to another? Simultaneously clearing up the space on my C: Drive while taking up space on my other drive.

Thanks guys.

If you want to move your personal folder, you will need to set up a symlink — MXS will only let you place your personal folder on your install drive.

Quick explanation here: viewtopic.php?p=159593#p159593

If you have been putting all of your files into your install folder, (i.e. C:\Program Files\MX Simulator) then you can just move that entire folder to the second drive.
