Default Quick Question

I want to reinstall Windows because my computer is acting really weird. I have two hard drives, C and D drive. If I save all my stuff on the D drive, will it be erased when I reinstall Windows?

As long as you don't format drive D. Assuming the OS is on drive C.

You only need to reformat one drive (you can partition the empty space with Partition magic). So the drive you leave alone will retain all the data.
