FSX-SE naar SSD overzetten


850evoHow to move your existing FSX installation to another SSD drive?
Read carefully and check each step:

  1. Navigate to the root of FSX, standard e.g.:  C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/
  2. Select the folder e.g.: C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/
  3. Press the key combination Ctrl+X to cut the folder Microsoft Flight Simulator X (folder changes into faded color)
  4. Navigate to the other drive that you want to move your FSX installation to
  5. Press the key combination Ctrl+V to paste the folder e.g. drive F:/
  6. Check your new folder contents
  7. Navigate back to the original folder e.g. C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator X
  8. Delete this folder Microsoft Flight Simulator X if still there
  9. Close all Windows Explorer views and Open the Command Mode as administrator (%windir%system32cmd.exe)
  10. Type in the command line (without quotes) “mklink /j” (mind the space after the letter k)
  11.  After typing mklink /j  hit the space bar once and type a double quote ”
  12. Directly after this double quote, type the original location of the FSX folder and close with a double quote “
  13. The command line looks so far like: mklink /j “C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/”
  14. Hit the space bar once and type the new location of the FSX installation as on your new drive between double quotes.
  15. The command line looks like e.g. this:
  16. mklink /j “C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/” “F:/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/”
  17. Mind the spaces! And then Hit ENTER
  18. Ready
  19. The mklink /j  command creates a directory junction between “Link” and “Target”
  20. This is what you read in the CMD mode:
