Moving Itch app from C: to D:?

C: space is filling up, so I've tried moving the game into my D: instead (which has more space than it should). I ended up deleting the file more times than I remember, and after I deleted it off of my C:, I thought it would work fine on my D:. Though when I opened Itch it reinstalled and went back into my C:. So I just went with moving the game files installation (the VN's that I download) to the Itch file that I moved to D:. 

So now I have two Itch files, one in C: one in D:

Is there a way I can permanently move it to only D:? The games took up 2 GBs, and even after I moved them to D: it's still not showing the GBs back. 

I'm not very intelligent when it comes to computers and how to work everything (as you can tell, I probably just messed everything up ;=;) so if someone could help me I'd appreciate that!


Assuming you're  on the latest version of the app, you should be able to move the directory of games to a new location, then go to settings and manage the install locations to tell the app you moved things. Remove the old install location on the C drive, then add a new install location pointing to where you moved your games. Afterwards you can instruct the app to scan the directory for games and it will restore your library. Hope that helps.

I ended up just changing the install location for the games and everything seems to be working fine now. Thank you, though!
