You can install the game on any drive you want. I would not recommend installing it on an external drive. Speed of most of the external drives would be an issue I think.

 

Oh, and should have said that moving the drive would consist of uninstalling it on the current drive, then reinstalling it on the drive of your choice.

They want to move the installed game to a larger drive, which should work just fine. And yea, running the game off an external will increase your load times depending on the drive (5400RPM vs 7200RPM), and the interface (USB 2.0, 3.0, or e-SATA).

I have moved the game files to another SSD with no problems just needed to make a new shortcut on the desktop to the new location of the EXE file for the launcher.

That's good to know. What about the save file for the battle videos. How does he redirect the path to his choice of drives?

I have not tried shifting them I save in separate drive in bulk. Someone in the Mod section might know how to do that.
