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 Battle.net 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.
Move Overwatch Location
First off, open the Game Settings for Overwatch. Do this in the Battle.net client by opening the ‘Options’ menu found under the logo. You’ll need to make sure that Overwatch is closed before continuing.
In the window that pops up, you can configure many settings for Overwatch. On the left hand side, choose ‘Game Install/Update’. Here, you can change the location of your Blizzard games.
Next to Overwatch, press the ‘Use a different folder’ button, and choose where you want to move the Overwatch installation to. Save your changes and relaunch the game.
