migrate / move epic games launcher between drives
Installed Epic Games Launcher to under speced SSD drive.
My Epic Games folder is already 100GB with all engines, UT and vault downloaded, how can I move this to another drive?
I copied the folder "Epic Games" from old location to new location and reinstalled Epic Games Launcher to this new location.
When I try to install something within Epic Games Launcher, it states that the folder needs to be empty.
I do not want to have to download everything again.

What you need to do simply is rename the folder the games are in Like Game -> Game2 start the install on all the games to a new folder called Game then pause install or if not enough space it will pause anyway then delete Game and rename Game2 back to Game.
When you resume install it will verify the files. I do it often I am up to 5TB of installed games need to upgrade again soon.

Move (dont copy) "epic launcher" folder from Program Files to desired location and then use windows junction point method, Example: mklink -j C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games D:\Epic Games it will create a fake Epic Games folder in program files that is linket both ways to Epic Games on D drive

Here are some posts where other users have moved the engine and content. See if any of their suggestions work for you.

Hey guys, not to necro, but I found a solution. If you move the install app to your second hard drive the setup wizard gives you the option to change the location of the app. At least that's what worked for me, hopefully it works for you too (aka, the girl reading this.)
