    Default Moving Community to another drive

    Once Community has been moved from C: to E:, how do we let FS2020 know where to look for add on liveries/sceneries?
    Thanks for your advice

    You can't just move folders and expect a program to find them.

    In your case you should use Add-on Linker.

    It only places a small link in the Community folder to where you want to keep the large files.

    Is that like an app/GUI/overlay for making symbolic links?
    Which is actually the answer he needs.

    Actually you can move a bigger folder such as "Packages" which is in the Local Cache from the Cdrive to the E as long as you change the destination drive name in the UserCFG.opt file...
    I was just asking if someone knows whether there was a specific line to modify somewhere to make the program look for Community in the E drive instead of C
    Thanks for the suggestion
