i have 4 drives, ca i just delete the drive that the OS is on and keep all my games and programs on my other hard drives.
would this be ok or is it better to delete everything with a fresh install?
It *SHOULD* work but you'll have to tell steam, origin, battlenet etc where your games are stored which is pretty easy. It has worked fine for me so the chances it works are pretty high but there is still the chance that it doesn't. I currently have 5 drives in my system (ssd,ssd,ssd,hdd,hdd) and use 3 of them for games and re-installing windows hasn't affected them (i have had to tell steam and origin etc where to find the games).
