    Default Transferring FSX from HD to SSD

    Can it be copied/pasted from my C drive to an SSD or do I have to do a new install?

    Thanks

    Seeing no one responded, I took a chance and tried it. Very successful. Only lost FT KBOS, TNCM and Aerosoft AES. Easily reinstalled to the SSD. The only app on the SSD is FSX. Nothing else. OS is still on the HD. It is running flawlessly. This is where I will also install MS2020 when I get it, after the major bugs are corrected.

    Sorry for the late reply.. I just did a move of FSX from Program Files to another directory, using TeamViewer, by remote access. It worked like a charm. The guy updated from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, & did not have a clue on what to do, or even how to find where the sim folders are situated.

    Anyhow, all working..
