  1. [Question] Install already existing programs


    Hello fellow Windows users.

    I have an SSD for Windows and an HDD for everything else. I reinstalled Windows and kept all the data on the HDD, of course as intended all the registry entries got deleted but the programs on the HDD are all runable when opening the exes.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to reinstall all those programs without redownloading them?

    I know that I could download the install wizards and choose the already existing paths but it is possible that some programs won't verify the already existing data and just redownload and overwrite them.
