I'm no expert on cloning so I will offer other solutions.
Use that 500 GB drive just for your data. Move all your personal files, eg photos, videos, music tracks, etc to the larger drive.
Existing Programs will not transfer like that, but many applications will allow you to install them onto 2nd drives, so try that in future installs.
Just keep the 50GB drive for the OS and any software you cannot uninstall and reinstall onto the larger drive and that should be fine.
I have to ask, are you regularly taking backups of those personal files? An Operating System and software can always be reinstalled if anything breaks, but lost personal files are not so easily replaced.
