Why are you formatting your drive? Unless there has been a defect warning from a surface scan or a virus or trojan you can't get rid of (an unlikely event) there is never a reason to format. The most you should have to do for maintenance is an occasional defrag of the disk.

To save your updates you need a full backup and if you restore from that backup after a format you are right back where you started.
