Moving Oculus Home

I have an SSD as my main drive and it’s not that big, so I’m unhappy whenever stuff like Oculus Home insists on installing itself (and all the software you download through it) only on that drive. But luckily that’s easy to fix if you know how. So here it is. How to move away the Oculus Home software folder and create a symbolic link to make Oculus Home believe it’s still there.

  1. Quit Oculus Home
  2. In Windows Explorer, take C:\Program Files (x86)\Oculus\Software and move it somewhere else, like D:\Program Files (x86)\Oculus\Software
  3. Right-click on the Windows Start button and choose Command Prompt (Admin)
  4. mklink /J “C:\Program Files (x86)\Oculus\Software” “D:\Program Files (x86)\Oculus\Software

Done! It should say something like Junction created! You can restart Oculus Home and everything should still be there and working normally!
