    If you fresh install W10 you have to reinstall your applications.

    Indeed you have to reinstall those applications on the D:\drive.
    Just leave the files that are already there and just overwrite them if you get a message that some files already exist.

    What program did you use to clone the drive ? With Acronis or Macrium Reflect it should work ;)

    Macrium Reflect and do both paritions, should work straight off.
