Way 2. Manually Move Uplay Games

Another way to do this is to move Uplay games to another drive manually. You don't need to download extra software, but the process is a little bit complex and time-consuming. We will show you how to do it with detailed steps here.

Now follow the steps here to start:

Step 1. Launch Ubisoft Connect.

Step 2. Click on your game under the Games section.

Step 3. Select "Properties". Then, choose "Open folder."

(The default location of Uplay games: C:/Program Files (x86)/Ubisoft/Ubisoft Game Launcher/games/)


Step 2. Copy the entire game folder to the target location.


Step 3. Right-click on the Ubisoft Connect icon in the bottom right and select "Quit."

Step 4. Delete the original game folder. Then, launch Ubisoft Connect again.

Step 5. Find the game under the Games section, and you will see the "Play" button is now shown as "Download."

Step 6. Click on "Locate installed game" and select the new game folder. Then, click "OK" to verify the game files. (The time required for this process depends on the game file size.)


Step 7. Once the process is done, you will see the "Play" button is back. Now, you can enjoy your games from another drive.


However, if the file size of the game is too large or you want to move multiple games, manually moving them would be slow and take dozens of minutes or even hours. It could also lead to data loss if you operate improperly. Thus, the best choice is to use EaseUS Todo PCTrans, which is easier, faster, and safer.
