Purchased new computer and want to transfer all my FS9 files freeware/payware + addons (Ultimate Terrain, ASv6, Ultimate Traffic, BEV, FSGenesis, Radar Contact 4)from my old computer to new one. As suggested in a previous forum question, I've purchased an 80GB external HD ($90) and will connect via USB. My question is can I just transfer all the data to external HD then re-connect to new computer via USB and transfer? Do I still need to re-load the basic application of FS9 by CDs on the new computer and data transfer (copy) over that with stuff from old computer, OR can I just grab my entire FS9 folder, UT folder, BEV, etc and click and drag over to my new computer's HD?
Any advice or lessons learned is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance
