How do I move my projects from one computer to another?

The search facility seems really awful here. I get tons of unrelated hits. But maybe that's because there's no other question like this.

I know that there are files cached somewhere that are important to projects.

I just built a new computer, and I would like to move my workspace from my old computer to my new one?

Is it as easy as copying my project directory to the new computer, and the caches will automatically rebuild when I open the project again? Or do I need to use some sort of export utility? Or is it not possible?

Thanks,

Tom

I think every package is created with relative paths. If you open the package's PackageDefinition xml you will see that it is just referencing folder inside the package.

So I think you are free to move them anywhere.


Moreover as I think of it now. I used to send my entire package to my colleguas and they copy it into a completaly different folder and drive and they never had problems.

Excellent.

I was mostly worried about textures for airports. I know they're cached somewhere because when you edit them, they don't change, so I continually have to rename them to get edits to stick.

Thanks

So, I just rebuilt a package I had moved over.

I got these warnings:

Now, it says 0 failed. Am I going to run into a problem here? It looks like the textures are all still in the package. But, why did I get these errors?
