Need help moving programs (games) to new harddrive

I'm trying to find an easy way to move all my programs from one drive to another without cloning everything. I don't need to move my OS just programs. I don't know if I'll have to copy any registry files I'd rather not have to. Thanks for any help.

    Well installed programs have a lot of registry entries with the installed location linked to it. Many time just copy pasting doesn't work for games and other apps.

    I would say, just uninstall them from the current drive and install them to a new one. Just take a backup of the saved games (for games) and copy them to the location of the new installer.

    That is the only way i know of.
