So you want to just move the programs but keep the old OS at the moment?
You can still use the method I posted.
EDIT: Got bored and made a .bat script. Just copy the code into Notepad or similar and save it as a .bat file (this script assumes the name is "movsym.bat"). You just put in "movsym [Source] [Destination]" and it takes care of the rest. You do need to use this with an elevated command prompt though.
Please note that I only did a basic test to make sure in theory it works and this should be done at your own risk :3
IF "%~1"=="" GOTO help
IF "%~2"=="" GOTO help
IF NOT EXIST %~f1 GOTO src_err
robocopy %~f1 %~f2 /MIR
rmdir /S /Q %~f1
mklink /J %~n1 %~f2
@echo Move a folder and replace it with a symbolic link.
@echo NOTE: This needs administrative rights to perform!
@echo USAGE: movsym [Source] [Destination]
@echo [Source] : Source of the folder.
@echo [Destination] : Destination of folder.
@echo Source folder %~f1 does not exist.
