What do I do with game installs on second HD when main HD fails?

Hopefully this will be an easy answer. The system I am building has 1 SSD and 2 1TB HDs. If I install games to the 1 TB drives and the SSD crashes and I have to install windows again, what do I do with all of the game files?

I assume I can manually dig around and pull out my save games, but do I just delete the folder since it won't be able to be properly uninstalled? Then I just re-install once the OS is running on the SSD again?

Thanks!

If you re install after the crash to the same location without removing the files then the game only has to update the registry and not actually install the game files!
