You uninstall them from the C: drive and reinstall on the D: drive. Just moving them will not always work as and entries in the registry will still point to the C: drive.

Pics and documents are not programs so you can move then by copying or drag and drop. You need to hook the old drive to the new computer either directly or by a USB enclosure.
