HOW TO MOVE PC GAMES TO ANOTHER HARD DRIVE | Steam, EA Origin, Epic Games, Blizzard, Microsoft ,

Here’s my easy to follow guide of how you can transfer your PC games from Steam, EA Origin, Epic Games, Blizzard Battle.net, or XBox Game Pass for PC, to a new hard drive, and even to an external hard drive, without downloading them all again! A must-watch that will save you hours! 😊

Modern games are over 100GB in size, so upgrading your hard drive is just one of those things that eventually you’ll have to do. Downloading all your game libraries again though is time consuming, and also, not necessary!

I will also show you how to move ALL your games onto a single external hard drive, and then plug that hard drive into multiple PCs and laptops so that they all run off the same external drive. That’s a MASSIVE cost saver, and time saver too! 😊

So, whether you are looking to move your steam games to another hard drive, or move your blizzard, origin, epic games or microsoft store games to another drive, each chapter in this video has you covered.
