Thank you
What was on the SSD before you install it? What device was it connected to? What operating system are you connecting it to now?
I bought the ssd new so nothing was on it. Then i downloaded Windows 10 on the ssd. So the ssd is now (c:) and the previous (c:) is now (e:). And when i try to open a program it says c:\program files\office(for example)\office...exe. This path isnt available.

OK, so you are clicking on a shortcut that is pointing to C drive, but the file is on the E. You can either change all links MANUALLY from c: to E:, or uninstall, and reinstall all programs on to the E drive.

Do you see what has happened. The shortcuts all think your programs still reside on C, when they are on E.

Right click over the shortcut, and select properties. In target, change C to E. In start in, change C to E
