moving files and folders

can files and folders be moved from one drive to another without altering content or performance ie if a game is moved will it be the same as original?

Only files and folders containing data can be easily moved.

Folders with programs (eg games) cannot be simply moved - the system holds references to exactly where they are in places you may not be able to find.

You may be able to delete a game and re-install it in another drive and/or partition and/or folder, if the installation routine allows it.

It won't affect performance or content of the game.
