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!

That's because they used to be on c:\ and it still says they are.

Reset the game saving destination to d: (or whatever you're now call the old drive)

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.
