I have a DCS dedicated w10 OS on one SSD. (C: Drive)
I have DCS exclusively installed on another SSD. D: Drive)
I want to upgrade the DCS SSD from 240G to 480G
If I copy the contents of D: to the new SSD and then name that new drive D: will DCS still work without having to edit the registry?

That's beyond my tech knowledge I'm afraid -Mako migth know?

Might be best asked on ED's forums as there's bound to be people there who know.

Tbh as long as the new drive has the same name as the drive it’s replacing then there shouldn’t be a problem as the pathways would remain the same and all point to the right places…
