Hi there,
I am about to rebuild my PC changing my CPU, motherboard and adding a 250gb nvme SSD. I currently have a 2tb Hard drive which is almost full with games.
I intend to do a fresh install of windows to my SSD and then using my HDD for main storage. windows 10 is installed on my HDD but i don't intend to use it
Will I still be able to play my steam games installed from my HDD?
Will i be able to play other games installed on my HDD?
I don't particularly want to wipe my HDD and start again
I do have a 1TB external hardrive that i could potentially back some things up to but I don't want to backup my entire game library
Thanks

Steam games, you can tell the new Steam client where they live on the old drive.

Steam games location
In the steam client:
Steam
Settings
Downloads
Steam Library Folders
Add library folder
Thanks Will this work for none steam games though? like on Blizzard, epic games, origin?
