I'm a newbie with Cardano. Anyone can tell me how to move the Daedalus blockchain data folder from AppData to another drive?
I want to keep my C-drive's space by moving DB to another drive.

After installing the wallet, look for the file called
daedalus.bat inside Daedalus installation directory. Open it and change the following line:
-n --db-path ^
for anything like this:
-n "%APPDATA%\Daedalus\DB Wallet" ^
If you've already synced, move the ledger database to the new location.
You can find the second solution here.
I'd use directory junction ( aka. Hard Link). Stop Daedalus, open and elevated command prompt and type:
mklink /J C:\Users\YOURUSER\AppData\Roaming\Daedalus D:\Daedalus
YOURUSER = Your Windows User running Daedalus
D:\Daedalus = Your path where you will store the Daedalus folder
In this way you don't have to modify any config file in Daedalus.
