I am having issues with my computer and am planning on reformatting. I have a terabite hard drive which I moved everything to and a half terrabite hard drive which has Windows 7 and all that on it. If I reformat will it remove everything from all the hard drives or just the one I choose to install Windows 7 on?

When you format a partition (which could be an entire drive) only that partition is formatted. Of course, it's possible to make a mistake and format an unintended partition.
