Orbx re-setup after windows10 re-install


Recommended Posts



Sadly, I recently had my Win10 OS become corrupted on my c: drive, which has forced me to re-install windows and regrettably trash most of my sim.


Thankfully, all of my downloaded Orbx scenery resides on my PC's drive D: in a folder called ORBX, so was not trashed when the c: drive was wiped.


I have downloaded and re-installed ORBX Central onto my new fresh Win10 c: drive, but don't know how to point Central to my other drive D and it's ORBX folder, so that it can discover all my ORBX scenery sitting there and thereby avoid having to re-downloading all my purchases again.


Could you advise please?


Thanks in anticipation

To be honest I can recall, it was some time ago that I changed the location of my ORBX scenery to drive D and I cant recall how I did it.


Here is an image of the D drive folder. Dont know if this gives a clue? Its 642 GB in size, so I needed to move it away from my C drive !

You can see that i have both P3D and XPlane.

Looking back at my notes, I may have used a program called 'Junction Link Magic'.


In C: \Program Files \Lockheed Martin \Prepar3Dv4, I created a 'Junction link on the ORBX Folder and linked this folder to the drive D ORBX folder shown above.


This displays the content shown in my attachment above, in the C: \Program Files \Lockheed Martin \Prepar3Dv4 \ORBX


Having repeated this process, Orbx Central is now showing all my Orbx scenery as installed.


In Orbx Central, under Settings, I've set my main Library as D: ORBX


Do you think all of the above will have solved my problem?
