Minecraft Directy Change

Hello again,

I would like to move my .minecraft folder off of my SSD and onto my HDD but do not know what text to enter into a BAT file specifically for my drives. The drive location that I want to store this directory on is at Z:\my games\minecraft\.minecraft\

If you could help me out or show a better way that would be awesome :)

Thanks,
--J.T.

    You can accomplish this by creating a .bat file. run the batch file where ever you want minecraft to be installed. If you use a desktop shortcut link the shortcut to the batch file.

    copy and paste the following into a notepad file.

    @echo off
    Title Minecraft Launcher
    set APPDATA=%CD%\
    start %CD%\minecraft.exe

    When you save the file save it a Minecraft.bat

    Make sure the extension is .bat

    Before running create a folder titled "bin" and another titled "data" within the same directory. Place the minecraft application in the bin folder. after ward you can launch the batch file.

    I get an error: 'Windows cannot find Z:\My'
    That folder its looking for is called My Games
  3. Try changing the .bat file to...

    set APPDATA=%CD%\data
    bin\minecraft.exe

    Sorry for the false info.

    now the command window flashes, and nothing else happens.

    EDIT: Moved my minecraft into the bin, solved the issue. Thanks for all the help
