I recently formatted an sas raid array and it's now empty, I'd like to move some installed programs on a different ide drive to the raid array hoping to speed things up just a little. How can programs and folders/files be moved to a different location and have all the registry information changed so it's all correct within Windows?
As others mentioned, you can't really move apps to another drive without uninstall/reinstall steps, but you can change the default installation path so that all future apps will end up in the desired location. Please see the following tutorial on this site - it's a simple registry mod.

In general this isnīt possilble because of the registry entries.
But for "simple" programs you can edit the location path in the registry.
On the other hand there are programs which donīt require registry entries, do it works for them.
