I just upgraded my PC, including adding an SSD for the Windows 7 OS. I have a ton of programs on the old HDD (which still has the old OS also) but most of them are broken because the OS being used is on the SSD. How can I fix this without reinstalling each progam? Also, the SSD has ~13GB space left after OS, how can I make updates/downloads go to a large HDD?

Most likely you can´t, because a lot of software does registry entry, wich in your case are int he old OS, so you most like need to re-install or use some sort of hack.
