I currently have a HDD with my os and about 70gb of programs on it.
I recently bought a 60gb SSD, and would like to transfer my os across to it. I also wanted to keep the programs working on the HDD they are on currently. If this is not possible i could just uninstall majority of the programs so that the os will fit onto the SSD, or i could completely reinstall all the programs, but this would take a lot of time. If so, i would like to know how much of my settings ect that i can save for the new os.

I suspect in the long run it will be quicker to fresh install your SSD and start again. You will have space on the SSD to load your most used programs for fast access and the rest on the HDD, I imagine splitting them 1st would be a bit of a nightmare!

I agree with dodger46;

A clean install is the best option.
