    I also had this bug with DSR by RS2 upgrade, after I reinstalled 381.65 it started working again.

    You do realize I am perfectly well aware of all of this. Why are you arguing?
    I would prefer to do clean installs. However, due to my internet speed limits and over subscribing our crappy backhaul, I gave my reasons for not doing so. It requires me to download well over 50 GB to get every thing back. That's nearly a week of doing nothing else. I just go old school burn an ISO to disk to the update, clean up the leftovers and call it good. No issues this time.

    Is there a good reference site on how to move Origin games to another drive w/o re DL'ing the game.
    I would try uninstalling Origin, reinstalling origin to new drive and move the Origin game folder to new path(I only have BF4 and BF1 both under Origin game folder).
    I might add new SSD second drive or to my secondary HDD but that's a spinner.

    I haven't tried it personally but I don't see why it wouldn't work like this: move Origin's library folder(s) to the drive you want it to be and quit Origin; move the games from the old library folder to the new one (via File Explorer or similar); start Origin again, refresh games library and in case the games which were installed previously would be missing now try re-downloading them - Origin should pickup the files from the disk instead of actually downloading them.

    But this will work only for those games which aren't downloaded as installers first. Tbh, only a handful of games in Origin do this these days. Even Dead Space 1 (the oldest game in Origin I have I think) doesn't, as far as I remember.

    Yes, that basically matches one method in the link archie123 posted.
    I never had to move any, seems pretty straight forward.

    Not sure about that. I believe you'd have to Backup your Origin\Games folder. Then uninstall Origin. Install origin to the new drive. Start the downloads for the games you have backed up. Once they hit 1% each, close Origin. Copy the Games folder to the new Origin folder. Restart Origin. It should now check each game and after a (long) while notice they are up to date. Be aware that this method sometimes fails and Origin downloads the game again for some reason.

    If you keep your old drive as well, you could alternatively just move your Origin folder (or just the games folder or individual games) to the new drive and create a directory symbolic link to them with

    mklink /D "Linkpath" "TargetPath"

    This will make it appear to be in the same location still, but actually it'll just be a link to the new location. No reconfiguration or reinstall needed.

    For example, if you have your Origin installed in C:\Program Files\Origin and you have moved Origin to your new drive G:\Games\Origin:

    mklink /D "C:\Program Files\Origin" "G:\Games\Origin"

    If you or the OS tries to access C:\Program Files\Origin it will access G:\Games\Origin instead.

    I had the almost the same issue but not exactly the same scenario like the video when during 1st boot up, restart & even shut down.

    P.S. red artifacts in the middle part of the monitor, but it disappeared in a second.

    This is awesome, tuvm for this. I was going crazy trying to move BF4 to another drive and Origin wasn't having any of that.

    To reply about this driver, not sure if it's the Creator's Update or the new nVidia driver, but had my first complete system lockup and crash. A page was displayed before I was able to hit the reset button, saying. "Windows has encountered an unknown error and is compiling data to send, when it is finished compiling data the computer will restart?". Anyone seen this pop up before?

    This was playing The Witcher 3. Just so everyone knows, TW3 will drop to desktop on me without an error message, but very rarely. It's the game, I'm pretty sure, it's done it on several different computers. Also I could not get TW3 to launch after this crash occurred, so it could be some type of game corruption I guess.

    This system was always rock solid, I did a DISM repair/check and a scandisk and no errors were found, event viewer shows a bad shutdown, and nothing else.

    this driver made my power supply act all wonky. not sure if fans were already borked but they started making all sorts of noise. rolled back and they went back to normal.

    I can definitely confirm as a fact this driver GeForce Hotfix driver 381.65 has very bad performance only on windows store games UWP , it happens on both of my games Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Motorsports 6 Apex in my configuration while using it with Windows 10 x64bit Creators Update Version 1703 OS Build 15063.138 , i loose around 20fps on both of those games. It does not happens to any other game i tested DiRT Rally , NFS 2016 , BF4 , Bioshock Infinite , Metro LL , all this game play fine and fps are great.

    I rigorously tested all this drivers in all the games mentioned above: 378.66 , 378.78 , 378.92 and 381.65. the best performance driver with the best IQ on my configuration is 378.92 on Windows 10 Creators Update.

    @Manuel G. Please take a look at it if you can, and why is this happening only with UWP games ? Thank you in advanced.

    Yeah...For the most part the Origin games you can move fairly easily. It's the BF games and the DLC you have issues with. Origin does not want to recognize the files. So you have to restart Origin downloading the game for each DLC. It's PITA.
