I am making progress in setting up my new laptop. It has Windows 11. (My old laptop has Windows 10).
On my old laptop my I have the following folder on my C drive:
So, I think I used the “jeff” folder pretty often for various vst purposes.
On the new laptop Microsoft (in its infinite wisdom) set up these two user folders:
Users>jeffn> etc (so different than “jeff”)
So, apparently it is not as easy as changing the folder name on my new laptop.
Before I screw this up, I figured I would consult with the brain trust here.
Basically, my objective is to set up my new laptop so it mirrors my old laptop as much as possible (so I can use the same gig files etc.).
(I know of the concept of symbolic links, but I have never tried to actually set them up. And I don’t know if that works here).
Thanks for any guidance on this.
[PS: The good news is I just opened up my full Gig file on the new computer and everything I tried (I spent about 10 minutes) seemed to work perfectly. I seemed to load up fine (faster than my other laptop). I went through about 15 songs on one of my set lists and everything worked on the songs I tried (Very happy!)]
