I found this thread, which indicates you move the game folder BUT NOT ORIGIN

 

So would I just move the games only and then say to Origin they're now on that disk drive?......

Origin software have to be on c: drive. (There is no way  to install Origin on another drive than c: ) This is not so much a problem, because Origin takes only 250 MB.

But of course, You can have games download on (or move to) another drive like this:
