Hi I wanted to know if i move my PROGRAM FILE folder from my primary drive 40gb, to my secondary drive 120gb will it have any effect to the way my system operates either good or bad?

big YES.

should you do it? no. unless you have a reason to. program files houses the installation files required for some programs to run, and the path they exist in are registered with your computer and alot of shortcuts, regs, etc. leave it unless absolutely neccessary.
