Changing BF3 game files directory path

basicaly i want to copy the battlefield3 game files to a different HDD i had lying around to see if it loads quicker because my main one is very slow. but the thing is when i want to play online and i choose a server through battlelog it will always load from the original path (C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3) when i want to load from 'Z:\battlefield 3'

so does anyone know how to edit it? i don't realy want to delete the original directory incase it's faster and i want to go back to it but i just copy and pasted it.

    tart regedit , browse to the following key :

    HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WoW6432Node\EA Games\Battlefield 3 and change both GDF Binary and Install Dir to what you want(which in your case it'll be Z:\Battlefield3)
