    Microsoft Flight Simulator Installed on 2 Drives


    I have the Series X with the Seagate expansion card, and it appears Microsoft Flight Simulator installed to both drives? Showing as ~190Gb install, and when I try to move it either way it says it's already installed on that drive.

    What gives? Upon trying to move things around it's saying multiple games are already installed on the other drive when filtering by games installed on one. Do I just need to uninstall everything and start over? Lol

    Haven't reported it to MS on the console yet, but I'll do it when I get home.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox a good idea?

    Microsoft Flight isn't Microsoft Flight Simulator. Different game and it's not as demanding as your think. Most PCs/Laptops should be able to run it.

    Microsoft Flight is the latest installment to the flight genre though.

    I have that same issue. I were in contact with Microsoft "support". They said it has to be installed on C:{ drive. wooow I tried to install MICROSOFT Flight Simulator 2020 on my C:\ drive with a angry red notice that this redeem are already used.

    Flight Simulator X isn't. That is an old game. However Microsoft Flight Simulator is.

    I have a trick for you guys... symbolic links!

    This is tested, I installed MSFS 2020 today and did this as soon as I realized all of my efforts to keep the files on drive D: were booby trapped by poor Microsoft design. Gotta hand it to them, they are consistent!

    Just let MS FS think the files are being stored on C: under AppData and do the following. You can skip step 1 if you have not yet installed and start with step 2 so that the new install uses the symbolic folder link :

    1) If there is already a folder called "Microsoft Flight Simulator" in "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming" then
    a) close MS Flight Sim
    b) Move the entire "Microsoft Flight Simulator" folder to wherever you want it to live (other drive, whatever, anywhere is fine)

    Now create a symbolic folder link:

    2) Open DOS with Administrator priveledges

    3) Type the following. Make sure to replace both <user> and <wherever_you_moved_the_folder> before you hit enter:

    mklink /J "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator" "<wherever_you_moved_the_folder>\Microsoft Flight Simulator"

    4) If it says "Juntion created for ..." then you should see a symbolic folder "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator" (folder, but with a shortcut type icon). Now you are done. You have a folder on C: and all the paths within
    it still say C: when you go inside, but the files are actually stored elsewhere.

    5) This is reversable with by just deleting the link on the C drive.

    FYI, you could technically apply the same logic to each of the sub-folders if you wanted to pick and choose which to move.

    FYI #2, Windows uses syminks to permanently relocate things like you Pictures and Videos folders, so it is safe and not some weird hack.
