I just installed my ssd and cloned my old drive to the ssd. The problem is the ssd is now full and i cant move my games to it. How can clear up my ssd or move the programs on it to my old drive.

If you’re using default folders for your documents, pictures, videos, etc, you should migrate those folders along the download folder to the HDD instead of copying them and deleting originals. For the programs, yeah, you don’t have choice but to uninstall and reinstall on the HDD. There is no shortcut to that.

Did you buy a ssd with smaller capacity to replace a larger capacity HDD?
or did you fill up the ssd after the cloning?
well you could just install your old hdd as a secondary drive and move files from your ssd to the secondary drive

i had to delete quite a lot of stuff to make it fit on my 240gb ssd.
Now how do i move the programs and files?

Your own data files, like music, pictures, movies, texts and spreadsheets can be copied to the HDD. After having verified they copied ok, originals can be deleted.
Programs can't be moved. You have to uninstall them, and then reinstall them on the HDD.
