My hard drive is partitioned into c and d drives. If I format and reinstall on c will the data on d be ok?
Thanks for any help.

Okay your question is answered and this post is marked "solved" but I am just curious. Why do you have to format C to reinstall? You can reinstall windows without formatting by deleting the windows folder using deltree. In this way you don't have to lose data and still have a "clean" install.

If you format C:, and have applications installed on D: you will have to reinstall them to rebuild the registry entries. Over the top is usually OK.
