transfering everything except my os from a ssd to hd

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I began using my computer before i had the hard drive installed so the ssd has 50gb or so of programs on it. I want to only have my os on it and im wondering if it is possible to just move everything over or if it would be more complicated.

Depending on the program you can just copy-paste the client and it'll modify the install registry itself when you launch it again(or you can find out and do it manually), eg. Steam won't care as long as you maintain it's folder structure.

as makesithappen said though, best to reinstall to get rid of any registry hassles. If the programs you want to move are downloadable then simply reinstalling them and then moving your old client across into the new install location will do the job

Or you could be fancy and do NTFS junctions from your SSD to your HDD thumb.gif
