Moving Anaconda from one directory to another┬Â

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.
