I would like to store custom scenery files on a second hard drive that is different from the drive containing the xplane installation. Is it possible to create a link in the Custom Scenery directory to the other storage location in Windows 10? If so, how is it done?

I learned today this is possible via a symlink, which is a file that references another file via the file path. I have not tried to do this though, so your best bet for specific instructions would be to Google it. Here's the first one I found.

ln -s <target dir> <link dir>

Win 10:

mklink /J "<link dir>" "<target dir>"
