Why Transfer GTA V to Another Drive

Grand Theft Auto V is an action-adventure game developed by Rockstar in 2013. In this game, players will start their adventure in Los Santos, a dangerous city of crime and opportunity. This game is very popular. However, GTA V takes up a comparable 72GB of storage space. Over time, more junk files, such as cache cookies and files, may be generated while you play. As a result, users often experience problems with D or C drives being full and occasionally frequent crashes. In this case, many players try to move GTA V to another drive. Some users think it is possible to redownload the game directly to another drive. This is also an option, but GTA V takes up a lot of space; if you re-download it, it may take a lot of time, especially for those who do not have a good Internet connection.
