Moving Anaconda from one directory to another

Anaconda environment management requires known paths, and Anaconda must know the exact path where it is installed at installation time.

If you simply copy the Anaconda files to a new directory, Anaconda will not work.

To move Anaconda from one directory to another:

  1. OPTIONAL: Save your environments using the conda managing environments instructions.
  2. Uninstall Anaconda.
  3. Go to the new directory and install it there following the Anaconda installation instructions.
  4. OPTIONAL: Restore your environments using the conda managing environments instructions.
