New ssd reinstall of w10 and odrive - need to point to second drive of storage


#1

Hi
My previous setup had os and odrive on boot drive but odrive storage pointed to a large second drive. I am doing a clean install of W10 and odrive to a new ssd but want to carefully have odrive point to to large storage drive. There only seems to be an option to “move” odrive, when I am really looking to simply point to the previous location.

Hi @Thomas_Buck,
Were you using the “sync to odrive” feature previously? That can be used to point a local folder to a corresponding remote folder with the same name and sounds a lot like what you want to do.

You can read more about it here: https://docs.odrive.com/docs/manage-sync#section-sync-external-folders

If, instead, you had your default odrive folder (named “odrive”) on the secondary drive, you can follow these instructions:

This method uses the “Move odrive folder” function to move your default odrive folder to the existing odrive folder on your secondary drive.
