If you get what i mean

I'm trying to make the game run faster because it takes a very long time to load when i choose my profile it loads up okay.
If i use too many mods will the game run slow because I am using the recommended load order thread

Can i copy and paste the folder to my new sdd drive then do a homedir thing to the location directory via steam or whatever it is

I'm not going to bother anymore i will just play the game and wait for it to load

That should work.
You could keep the old as backup, if a harddrive fails.
