Situation up untill few months ago:
always installed everything via standard installer.
Before genesis was out:...
- all none M4 related characters/props (M3 related, buildings monsters robots etc.) in a Poser Content folder for the poser installer on seperate drive, all DS installers at there standard place. NO DEINSTALLERS
- all M4 related items, same procedure, but in a seperate Poser content folder on seperate drive. DS installers also in standard place. Again, no deinstallers.
(Yes i know i have a lot of duplicates in seperate locations, but i didnt care up until now, i just wanted to be sure if something was Studio specific, i would have it installed)
- all genesis related items are installed on there standard locations, ibelieve it should be something like .../.../DAZ3D/My Library or something on C drive.
to make long story short: So up until now all items i specific use in DS (M4 related and Genesis related) are on that standard location, i think genesis with deinstaller, but i think M4 without. Not sure though. All the rest is on a seperate drive, without deinstaller.
A BIG MESS, i know. But thats who i am actually.
I used the DIM for downloading all my content (should be something like +120GB) and let the installer install it at his standard location. I figured if this worked, i should have 2 similar content folders on my C drive and just delete 1 of them.
But apparently this is not the way it works.
There all installed at a very diferent place (f.ex. not people -> genesis -> clothing etc.) and most of them i think are even empty folders.
I saw the video about deinstalling, but first of all, like i said many deinstallers aren’t even there, those which should be there, i dont know where to find them, AND secondly i didnt find here anyone explaining WHY i would really need to deinstall 1 by 1 all the prvious items.
Thats why i tried it the Lazy Way.
Could someone help me out here to tell me what would really be the fastest way to solve this, and why it doesnt just work by adding another DAZ Studio folder in the preferences… ?
