You can't just cut and paste an installed game, it doesn't work like that. You have to uninstall it from the hard drive you want to delete it from, then reinstall it on the one you do.

Not true.

 

The GTA V installer is actually pretty good.... What to do here is re-run the installer and install the game to the SAME directory that you have moved the game to.

 

The installer will run through verification of the files, update/replace any missing ones and add any missing registry entries, shortcuts etc.

 

The installer will NOT re-download any files that it already finds in the folder you specify.

 

I know this as I have done it many, many times.

 

Good luck!

Wait what? No buddy, you can't just Control C n' V this thing.

Try the method that EducatedChaos, if that doesn't work come back.
