Move bottle's default location

I'd like to know how to move a bottles default location, because it is installing the games on my SSD which has limited space..is it possible to move it to my Data HDD?

I think this is what you need

Well you have a few options, which I have used both.

1) Move .cxoffice folder to another location and symlink back to $HOME/.cxoffice

2) What I am doing now, use 2 HDD - 1 ssd, 1 spinny disk. Setup your OS on the SSD, swap and /home/ on your spinny disk. I have a 32GB SSD + 1TB HDD used in this configuration.
