Location of Episodes- PC

posted by Onedaful on - last edited - Viewed by 149 users

Hey everyone,

I just recently purchased the Walking Dead and installed it on my PC. The problem occurs because I have a SSD for my windows boot and a separate HDD for everything else.

The game installs fine because it asks me what path it should install on but when I boot up the game and go to Downloadable Content I install the episodes but it installs onto my SSD where there is no space.

Any fix for this? Sorry if this has been asked I tried to use the search function and came up with nothing.

Thanks

    What Windows version do you have?

    There are only unofficial ways of doing that.

    The easiest way is moving the entire my documents folder to the other drive.

    If you only want the Episodes to go somewhere else, you can create a directory junction using mklink.

    I have attached a batch file you can use to do that. It should work on Windows Vista, 7 and 8.
    It will move the entire SyncFS folder to a path you choose. I chose to do it for the entire folder, so Temp files also download to the new location.

    First unzip it. Then right click TWD_make_syncfs__junction.bat and select "Edit".
    Change the path in
    set target_path="c:\The Walking Dead\"
    to the location where you want to save the Episodes to be saved, and save the file.
    Then right click the TWD_make_syncfs__junction.bat again, and select "run as administrator". Confirm and watch for potential error messages.
