How to Move Overwatch to Another Drive

In Overwatch, it’s completely possible to move the game to a different drive on your computer. Luckily, you are able to do this through the client, so that you don’t have to uninstall and reinstall the game.

The main reason that you might want to do something like this is mainly if you’ve got a new hard drive. If you’ve just added an SSD to your System, you might want to put Overwatch on there so that it loads up faster.

You can check our quick guide below for moving Overwatch to a different drive. Whilst we have covered a few more guides for Overwatch which can be found here.

First off, open the Game Settings for Overwatch. Do this in the client by opening the ‘Options’ menu found under the logo. You’ll need to make sure that Overwatch is closed before continuing.
