75% of my games are in my steam client , others are either individual clients or 1 off down loads.
My secondary ssd is 80% full , what would be the easiest way to move all my steam games to a new drive.
Could i simply right click and either move or copy paste the main steam folder to another drive or would i mess up my registry? , i dont know if games registry entries are "drive tagged"?

As a last resort i could delete everything and re-install my steam client on another drive but the downloads would take a couple of days to do.

After uninstalling anything i always use ccleaner to delete obsolete registry entries.
