How to reinstall Dota 2 in Disk (D:) ?

A Forum Thread for Dota 2

Dota 2 is installed in my Disk (C:) but it is running out of space and I can't download the Reborn Update. I tried 'Delete Local Content' but only deleted about 400 MB files NOT the whole game, the 400 MB can re-download but can't reinstall the game in Disk (D:). I tried this method on TF2 and it work but NOT on Dota 2

    Backup your unneeded files to the extra HDD. Did you do it?

    You can probably just delete the files manually, then, reinstall DotA2 and change the installation directory when prompted.

Of course, the worst that could happen is that the game isn't on your computer anymore, which is exactly what you want. If you're scared, do it from Steam first, which you're going to have to do anyway, then install it again in a different location.

If you're scared, do it from Steam first, which you're going to have to do anyway, then install it again in a different location. Doesn't seem to work, the install button doesn't give me an option to reinstall in other location. This is what I did, first I manually delete the folder 'dota 2 beta' (16 GB) with all its content. I try launch the game, obviously error. There is still no install button, so I 'Delete Local Content'. The install button appear but it doesn't give me an option to reinstall in other location. Then I 'Verify Integrity of Game Cache'. Then Steam attempt to download 6.9 GB files back to its original location but I suspend the download because it's not working as I intended.

That's probably the cloud doing that, and it probably wouldn't hurt cleaning the registry from all things DotA2.
