Hi all,

First, Greetings! Tera is one of the best games! I love it! Excellent Community!

OK. I'll be upgrading my system soon with a new faster hard drive and reinstalling. (It's a 500 GB Velociraptor FWIW)
Are there any issues with reinstalling Tera, because I installed it originally on a separate HDD, so I don't think it'll work to copy it. Will also be installing it on my main C Drive next time.
So, is all my game data stored in the cloud and there won't be any issues
after I reinstall, update, and files will get synced?

Thanks! :) Peace!

Though to answer your question, everything is stored server side except things like a tweaked .ini file which you would either need to copy + paste over on a flash drive or simply redo all the edits.

Just copy it to the new drive. I've copied it to a couple other computers this weekend via a network share for a LAN party (obviously the other guys had accounts, just didn't have it installed) and it worked just fine.

UI settings are stored on the server, hotkey settings are stored on the character. About the only things stored locally are video settings.

Hi Ajanata!
So copy TERA folder to:
C:\Program Files (x86) and all will be well?

OK. Thanks, Phaere. My question is answered.
Reinstall or Copy, doesn't really matter - All will be well either way.

And yeah, SSDs nice. But hey, I got a Velociraptor. ;)

You might need to take ownership of the directory if a different Windows install is in use. I wouldn't install this game under Program Files, though, because it doesn't elevate itself properly for patching (you'd have to run as Administrator quite often).
