Safe to move files (and how)?


Atom installed on one of my internal hard drives (which is about to be full). I was wondering how I would go about moving the “.atom” folder (and any other atom files) from one drive to another without completely messing everything up.


I’m assuming you’re talking about Windows.

Atom installs itself into %localappdata%\Atom (or Atom x64 if you used the 64-bit installer). I’m pretty sure you can move that entire folder without having to do anything special. Then move your %userprofile%\.atom folder, but set the ATOM_HOME environment variable to where you moved it to.


I’ll try it and see if it works. Thanks for the help!
