Boot on ssd cant access saved games on hdd?

I just booted up my new system and I have all my games and game saves installed on my old hdd which i just stuck in. I boot up from a 128gb ssd and whenever I try to start a game from steam the game goes through a first time setup and none of my game saves are there. Help me, thanks!

  1. That's because they used to be on c:\ and it still says they are.
  2. so how would i fix this?
  3. Reset the game saving destination to d: (or whatever you're now call the old drive)
  4. how would i do that lol. Im far from tech savvy when it comes to pcs in general

    assuming you went from windows 7 to windows 7 install...

    go into your old drive, under "\users\<your old account name>\" copy the "my documents" folder straight into your new c: drive, plaster it right into the same spot you got the old one. Let it "merge" and "replace" every duplicate file. that will probably fix 90% if the problem right off the bat.
