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?

There isn't a good way to fix those program other then reinstalling them.

Updates are going to go on the drive that Windows is located on, nothing you can do about that.

Downloads you can setup to go to another drive, there are lots of post here asking that same question.
