Conclusion

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.
