here is a brief overview of setup, i have 2 hard drives. C and G.... C has two partitions ( C: and D: ) and G is for games and apps...etc. If i install windows and another harddrive and not use the existing drive will windows on the new drive treat my G drive the same? Will it access the programs without a problem?

No, the data will still be there, but you'd need to reinstall the programs for them to work.

Could you not still re install the games ect for the new drive still on G:

But just put them in a different program files folder, for example Program Files G

Or something like that?

registry is not the only place where information of installed programs is stored. At least, a lot of software use Documents and Settings/user/Application Data/ folder.

Just back the whole G; drive up. Im guessing its a LOT of data but thats all I can think of.

I'd partition G: into 2 partitions. say G and F.

Use G for drive C and F for drive D or the new drive your putting in ?
