I’m trying to get all of my content onto a new computer (with Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit).
I started completely from scratch and used the Daz installation manager which worked pretty well as best I can tell - really haven’t done much exploring yet to see what worked and what didn’t.
I also have a separate Runtime (with 40GB) - and I’m not really sure how much if any overlap this has with the files already installed with DIM. Can I just add the path to this runtime - or can that lead to conflicts - I remember hearing that multiple installations of V4 o M4 could lead to problems. (probably a mix of things from Freebies / ShareCG; a few purchases from other sites - may have DAZ stuff as well though)
Are there certain files to look for that are know to cause problems if you have duplicates?
I think there was some type of software for comparing files on sale last week at DAZ (and probably off by now) - is that something I need to consider?
Obviously going through 40GB by hand would get pretty tedious - would welcome any advice that keeps me from messing up my installation.
Also, do I need to do anything inside of Carrara to get it to recognize the new content - or should that happen automatically once DAZ has recognized it.
And do I add this runtime from within the Content Directory Manager (via New content set) or is there a pace to enter runtime paths in preferences somewhere?
Thanks for the help
