How to Move Blizzard Games to Another Drive in 3 Ways

Now, download this application migration program and migrate Blizzard games to another drive on HDD or SSD.

Solution 2. Move Battle.net Games to Another Drive by Reinstalling
If you dislike using a third-party program, you can still try to manually move Blizzard games to another drive by re-downloading and changing the installation location. Note that manually changing the installation location does not guarantee that the game will start properly.
If you don't mind the time-consuming method, this method is right for you. It is recommended to install Blizzard games like HearthStone, Warzone, Duty of Call, etc., to a drive with enough space for the very first time. If you have to move them, follow the details below:
Step 1. Uninstall Games with the Blizzard Battle.net Desktop App.
Open the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app, select the icon for the game you want to uninstall, select "options", then select "Uninstall Game".
Step 2. Open the Blizzard Battle.net Desktop Application and go to the correct tab for the game you'd like to install. Hit the "Install" button.
Step 3. Under "Install Location," browse to the correct drive and folder you'd like to use for the installation. Click "Start Install". Then, repeat the steps for each game.
This method only changes the location of the game, not the Blizzard Battle.net Desktop App. Moving the Blizzard Battle.net Desktop Application to a different drive from your Operating System files can cause problems with your games.

Solution 3. Move Blizzard Games to Another Drive via Changing Installation Setting/Game Folder Location

Step 3. Head to interface again. The Install button will change to the Update button. Click it to finish the folder location change.
