Hi. I have a question. I bought a new pc yesterday and ı want to carry my hdd to my new system. It was one drive divided to 2 (C: and D:). My new pc has an ssd now and windows is on there and i want to use this drive as storage but at the same time i dont want to lose my games etc. Can someone help. Will it be a problem if i just install it in new pc and delete windows files?

While you can move STEAM and I think also Epic games, you do need to reinstall the program app to play them. All other games need to be reinstalled. Otherwise the new W10 install won't have any registry entries and they will not be usable. The same is true for all programs.

HERE is the STEAM page for moving the game folder.

Done wrong, and you can screw up both systems.

What, exactly, do you want to change from the old system to the new?

So it'll be best if i just reset the drive and reinstall all?

If you have an external HDD or can borrow from a friend, move all the important files for you there and just transfer it again after installing an OS to the SSD.
