Moved ESO to External Hard Drive. How to make it recognize new location?

Hello everyone,

So I moved my ESO steam install from my main HDD to an external one. Upon clicking launch, it had me reinstall the entire game again.
I've read that moving this installation between HDD's is a REALLLY bad idea.

My question is: I have the folder with all of the information in it, files and such, that's over 107GB. I moved this back to my main SSD and it's trying to make me install ESO *again*.

How do I make it recognize the main folder instead of having me install everything a third time?
