If you’re looking to free up space on your current drive or want to transfer iRacing to a different drive for better performance, we’ve got you covered. In this quick guide, we’ll show you the steps to successfully move iRacing to another drive without losing any important data.
First, start by backing up the Cars and Tracks folders to a separate location. You can do this by locating the iRacing installation folder on your computer (usually C:\Program Files
(x86)\iRacing), right-clicking the CARS folder, and choosing “Copy.” Paste the copied folder outside the iRacing directory. Repeat the same process for the TRACKS folder.
Next, remove iRacing from the Control Panel by going to Add/Remove Programs. Once you’ve uninstalled iRacing, delete the entire iRacing folder from your drive. Be sure to empty your Recycle Bin and restart your computer for a clean slate.
After restarting, visit the iRacing members’ site and follow the instructions for downloading, installing, and updating iRacing. If you want to preserve your setups and replays, consider backing up your Documents/iRacing/Setups and Replay folders before proceeding.
Once you’ve reinstalled iRacing, replace the new Cars and Tracks folders with the original ones you copied earlier. This ensures that all your cars and tracks are still accessible in iRacing.
Finally, refresh the iRacing Members site and perform any minor updates if necessary. Congratulations! You’ve successfully moved iRacing to another drive.
Now you can enjoy your iRacing experience without worrying about storage limitations or performance issues.
