I'm very new to Blender, and am not aware of it's intricacies. I need to move Blender from F:\ to E:\ . Can I just move the Blender folder to the other drive? Will it break Blender or any add-ons?

    $\begingroup$ If you got the Zip version of blender, you can move it and store it wherever you want. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It shouldn't break Blender itself even using installation version. But if you change/delete/move the preference folder located in users/user/AppData/Roaming/Blender blablabla..... The preference setting will be lost and Blender will create a new one for you. This could lead to losing add-on setting if you don't take care of it. $\endgroup$

The installation folder of Blender can be moved anywhere on your computer at any time.

The only folder that must be taken care of is the user folder.
That's where are stocked your personal data like preferences and addons. You need to copy that folder if you want to copy your Blender on another computer or have a USB installation that cna be run anywhere.
