I modded my Skyrim on my C: drive awhile back and it ended up breaking. I didn't have space on my C: drive to continue modding anyways, so I re-downloaded Skyrim to my D: drive, but I don't know how to mod it from there.

Is there a way to move my current mods from my C: to my D: and they would work? I typically use Nexus Mod Manager for my mods, but I'm not sure if that would be an option anymore. Also, will I be able to still use FNIS and other programs like it?

  • NMM should have an option to search for/point to a new location. – SaintWacko Oct 28 '14 at 17:34
  • Also, clean up your C drive. Empty your trash. I've seen upwards of 100GB in the Recycle bin before. – Kaz Wolfe Oct 29 '14 at 4:13
  • I thought the D: in the title was an unhappy smiley and was about to edit it out...Reminder, must not edit things before my morning coffee. – Alex Oct 29 '14 at 9:15
  • If you use LOOT or another loadorder program to automatically change the loot order, make sure you do this aswell. – Ahkam Nihardeen Nov 4 '14 at 12:56

As @SaintWacko said you just need to update where NMM thinks your installation of Skyrim is at and then it should continue to work like normal. If the auto-scan does not pick up the game then you should be able to enter it in manually.
