Hello,

I have been requested to reformat a hard drive on a Dell computer that has two logical drives on one physical drive. The master C: is the one I want to format and the D: is OK. Is it possible to format just the C: and keep the D: intact????

If it isn't possible, what things do I need to be able to partition the drive how I want it???

Thanks in advance.

Try using a better tool than Microsoft's default. My fav is PorwerQuest PartitionMagic. You definetly can do with that.

Hi gustac

As long as you don't repartition the hard drive and are not using any disk overlay software you should have no problem just formatting the C logical drive without formatting the D.
If you are using windows 98 just use a windows boot disk and at the A prompt type FORMAT C: /S
