Hi all, nice weather in UK!

I have a very established drive for Kotakt instruments, at 1 TB it's getting full. I have just bought a couple of new drives one of which is 2 TB, can I swap the files to this drive without getting hundreds of "locate files" messages when I next run NKIs?

Note not all of my NKis are shwoing in Access

I am happy to swap drive letters, would this work?


I am on Win 11

    I have done this.

    copy files to new drive, disable old drive, then name the new drive to old drive name and drive letter.

    i did slightly more complex thing, cloning 1 tb drive to 4tb drive, then expanded the partition to fill available space. This is done with drive cloning dock and some free utilitysoftware.
