Reinstallation of MSFS2020 from scratch on different drive (DVD box version)

Hi guys,

needed to install Win10 and MSFS2020 again. I decided to install MSFS2020 on a different drive. I also installed the launcher and it points to the packages’ path on my new game drive location.

BUT: When I start the launcher & the update search has finished the desired packages location is already in there. So far so good. But it also tell me that I need to download 120GB again.

idea 1: It only wants to download the necessary update of about 25 GB and is indexing the rest
idea 2: It really wants to download the entire title again.

Where is the problem?
