Moving Launchbox to SSD Drive

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

Could do with some advice please I currently have my full setup on my external drive problem is takes a while to load things up so I want to move launchbox and emulators across to my SSD drive to help make things abit snappier and leave all roms/media on the external drive whats the best way to do this do I need to reimport all my roms? I guess Ill have to change the path to the media aswell?

Thanks in advance

If your emulators are inside your Launchbox folder you can just move it, if they are not then you will have to adjust the paths to the emulators. You said you are leaving the games where they are so those should be fine, though if you have to you can use the Change ROMS Folder Path in Tools but that will only work for roms you have in the same folder, any games you might have in sub folders you will be best to use Notepad++, use the find / replace tool to change the paths.

If you have to re-import you don't have to re-download all the media since you will have that already. You also shouldn't have to change any media paths.

Thanks Lordmonkus mines pretty much setup the default way all emulators in the correct folder and media etc where they should be, so I don't even need to install launchbox I can just move it over?
