tranferring game folder from HDD to external drive?

Hey everybody,

I wanted to make room on my HDD for some other games, but i dont want to uninstall (we are on wifi and takes too long to redownload). I'm more of an old school guy so i never used external drives until recently. I recently got a Passport external and i was thinking about just moving the game folders from the C drive to the external.

Would this cause any problems later on if i tried to move the files back from the external to the HDD and tried to run them? i dont know if there would be issues with the registry or whatevers so i thought i would ask. Also once i plop it onto the external would i be able to play it from there too? if not i guess thats cool, my main concern is storage and being able to use it after i take it out of storage.
I'm not really a noob...

I've done this a few times moving the game to othe computers it's pretty straight forward just copy and paste the swtor game folder across when putting its back just run the launcher exe in the folder
And maybe do a repair
