How to Move World of Warcraft to Another Drive
To transfer WoW to another HDD or SSD, you can use the APP Migration feature of EaseUS PC Trans. It allows you to transfer installed programs to new hard drive effectively without worrying about whether the software will work or not.

How to Transfer World of Warcraft to Another Computer
Except for local transfer, EaseUS PC Trans still supports transfer via the network connection and via image files to move WoW from one computer to another.
Apart from the migration of account login software, this PC transfer tool also allows you to move activation code application, such as transfer Microsoft Office from one Laptop to another, or migrate antivirus from old PC to new one.
Step 1. Run EaseUS Todo PCTrans on both PCs
On the source PC, select "PC to PC" on the main screen of EaseUS Todo PCTrans and move on.
Step 2. Connect two computers
1. Select your target PC to connect via its IP address or device name and click "Connect".
2. Enter the login password of your target PC and click "OK" to confirm.
If you didn't see the target PC in the listed devices, you can also click "Add PC" to manually connect the target PC by inputting its IP address or device name.
3. Set the transfer direction - "Transfer from this PC to other PC" and click "OK" to continue.
Step 3. Select apps, programs, and software and transfer to the target computer
1. Click "Edit" on the application section, then you can open up the application list.
Then you can select and choose what you want to transfer from the current computer to the target PC.
2. After selecting desired applications and programs, click "Finish" to confirm.
At last, click "Transfer" to start the transferring process.
Although you may use the manual way to move WoW from one HDD to another by copying the WoW folder wherever you want (add-ons and settings) > changing the path file on battle.net up to the new WoW, it's not recommended. Because the folder is too large and migration takes too long. Also, there is a risk of damage or corruption to your files if something goes wrong. So, to make sure the migration is foolproof, we highly suggest that you use the professional program transfer tool.
