How we transfer Steam, Uplay and Origin games from HDD to SSD?

Getting my first ever SSD tomorrow as well as a 2TB HDD since my 500 GB is about to be full.

I suppose you could use the command prompt and do all of the link commands yourself, or you could just go the easy way and use steam mover.

Steam mover's the best answer. You don't need any more answers.

why the heck would you ask if there's another way when presented with the easiest method of doing what you're asking?

Masochist, maybe?

Just move your whole Steam folder in Program Files to the SSD.

I'd play more MMOs if there was no chat.

If he's got a buttload of games that would probably be a bad idea... if he's got a really small SSD then that's probably a bad idea... Steam mover lets you move games individually without much hassle. I actually just use the commands because I'm a masochist that way.

If he's really against steam mover, he can reinstall some games to the SSD through steam... in that case I'd just copy the game folder somewhere else and then tell steam to uninstall the game, then tell it to reinstall to the SSD, after it starts downloading I'd quit out of steam, move the copied game folder over, restart steam and let it find all the files so the "Download" completes quickly.

That would work for the games that support being installed in custom steam folders...I don't have a list of which games do and don't work with that feature though. It's been a while so maybe they've got them all working properly now?

I think if steam has ever "converted your game files to a new format" then it works...
