Secondary HDD Program Files desktop shortcut error

I recently built my own Desktop
I installed my Windows 7 professional x64 on my 60gb SSD
and then made my 1tb HDD my secondary storage.
I copied over program files to the HDD and whenever I install something and create a desktop shortcut the short cut never works no matter what I do.
