Changing mod folder location

If you want, you can change the location of your mods folder or the whole Farming Simulator folder, by symlinking to somewhere else on your system.

Why is this useful? Well if you are running out of space on your c: drive for example, or if one of your other drives is faster.

Here is how you do it:

  • Start a CMD (command prompt) with administrator rights
cmd admin
  • Use the mklink command to create a symbolic link to a new destination

mklink /D Link Target

The /D tells the command that you want to do a folder link, and the Link and Target arguments should be self explanatory.

The full command should look something like this, inputting the correct locations for your system:

mklink /D "c:\Users\usename\Documents\My Games\Farming Simulator 19\" "d:\new location\Farming Simulator 19\"

If you've done everything correctly, you should see a small arrow on your folder icon in the original location, so your c: drive, like you can see in the image below for the Farming Simulator 19 folder. This tells your system to look somewhere else for the actual contents of this folder.
