Yup, there sure is I actually do the same.

If you partition your hard drive using Partition Magic, and move all your files there, then you should be ready to reformat.

When you go to format your Windows partition (the one without your files) your files on the other partition will remain untouched. When you have Windows installed, you should be able to browse to the files partition and get everything back!
