How to move installation to a different drive?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to move HDP and its libraries off my startup drive and to a third internal drive.


I tried dragging the folder, but I get an error that something's in use. I realize this may not be the best way to do it anyway...


What's the preferred method? Reinstall?

Reinstall is probably the simplest. 


You will need to export, then import your user library, and if you have customized toolbars, you will need to save that folder, and move it, or copy the files to the new folder.


Probably need to deactivate and then activate the new install.


There is a KB article about moving to a new computer which should apply.
