    In theory you should be OK. All you're doing is copying from one hard drive to another. I have done this to make back ups of the whole thing on 2 external drives. Only time I've lost stuff is when I have had to do a factory reset of my computer. (Just did this) Not all my original files return after reinstalling the game which is why it's ideal to have the whole thing backed up a few times. It would be better to get a external drive with a lot of disc space and put it there, not on the main hard drive. My two externals are 3.63 TB each.

    Well technically it's not TS2013 anymore, it's Train Sim Classic.

    Anyhow, simply Googling "How to move Steam games to another drive", produced 100's of results...

    Thanks for your views. I have already moved Train Simulator to another drive and it is working fine. my problem is that every time I purchase any Assets or Routes from the Steam Store it automatically places everything in the original folders on the C: drive. I then have to search through all the folders in the assets and content folders in the old game and transfer them to the new game. is there a way to stop this happening?

    Well... This is a bit of a crap shoot here..... You should be able to completely delete the game on your C drive. I'd make sure ALL your folders on the external are up to date before doing the purge. Check them against those on the C drive.. And make a back up of what you have on the external just to be safe. I'm running into the same conflict. Due to numerous computer resets, I have the sim X 4!! Working on cleaning all this up as we speak. Get it down to a master file for the game and a backup.
