Reloading the website from a different drive - will I be able to without rebuildAutor: Adrian Wood
I have a website that is sourced from two drives on my PC - C and M where C is desktop but which is 250gb and M which is 2tb. I started to make the site from folders on the C drive but as the site grew I realized I was running out of space on C so I cloned the folders onto my M drive and worked from there.
I had assumed that once I had uploaded from the M Drive, I would be able to free up space on the C Drive by deleting the website folders there.
Before I do that, I want to be sure that the website uploaded from M has no files still on C. In other words, I do not want to delete the C files only to find that when I upload from M in the future, there are not missing files like images and pdfs, etc. that were on the C Drive.
I have also saved the complete project plus backup on M Drive
Could you please advise which of the following would most likely be successful?
I upload the website complete from M drive, i.e. I select the complete site option and not just the most recent files..... Hopefully, the site will be complete and I can then delete the C drive files.
Question to answer: Will all the files be uploaded or will the uploading be looking for files from the C Drive even though I have cloned the C drive with the M drive?
I go through each page and each file on every page in the WX5 project map to check the location drive. By that I mean, I look through a gallery for example and see the location of each image in a gallery and if this is set as from C, open the exact same file in M and then delete the original. Also for links to pdfs and music files etc.
This will be time confusing and consuming, so I am hoping that I shouldn't need to bother doing that.
I am assuming that WX5 project can only upload files from the original directories. Would that be correct?
The website is www.westridgewaychurches.co.uk
Thank you for your help.
