I was in SU6 beta, but not Reno beta. Seeing version 220.127.116.11
Getting a lot of CTDs - random a few minutes after starting a flight. Not had more than a few minutes in the sim since the “update” without a CTD. Not tried emoty community folder yet - that’s my next step.
Tha C:\Users\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache definitely got wiped. My airframe time in the DC-6 got reset, which is stored in there. All folders in there show today’s data about 90 minutes ago when I first hit the issue
I was in the SU6 beta, and I am also currently having to re-download 98GiB of data to a dedicated drive that the sim was installed to!
The sim was not installed on the default location, it was wiped from my dedicated drive and is now installing again to the same drive.
Were the packages installed in the WpSystem directory? If so, that still counts as a default installation path. I also used to have the simulator installed on a separate drive on my old PC, but inside the default WpSystem directory, and the packages ended up getting deleted after leaving both the Sim Update 4 and the Sim Update 5 betas.
Now I have the packages on a totally separate folder in my system drive, and I’ve been prompted to download the client again in the Microsoft Store, but so far the packages are still intact.
I was in SU 6 beta only. Package folder was default but installation folder is in D:\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_18.104.22.168_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe. Time stamps on files and folders still shows 8. October which is a bit confusing. Version is 22.214.171.124. Everything has reverted back to vanilla, need to redownload WU files, etc. I guess I am back to square one for the first time since alpha.
Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately there was no way out of this situation, because files inside the WpSystem directory cannot be copied and backed-up. I learned this the hard way twice.
Now that you have to download all the packages again, you can install them in your separate drive again, but make sure they go anywhere else but the WpSystem directory. For example, X:\MSFS works great, and it should help avoid such issues in future beta tests.
Thank you and i’m lucky that i didn’t install it earlier now when i know that. Will install it in a different folder then. How do we install in different folder tha wpsystem? Or do we just drag the package folders into another folder and point the sim towards it?
If the files are installed in WpSystem, I believe there is no way to copy them out. The only way is to select a different folder when you are prompted to install the packages, it should be somewhere in the bottom of the installation manager after the splash screens.
@ChaoticSplendid Unfortunately, no way out of it re-installing back into the WpSystem folder this time as it is part of the way through. I will definitely look to installing to a different folder next time though. Thank you for your help.
Sorry @perrry I seemed to have replied to your post and not ChaoticSplendid
