Well, again, thank you for your help. Any tips on backing up data before reformatting?

No problem .

Sadly you can't back any data up from your C: drive without a standalone copy utility but if you leave the S: drive alone for now you can access all of it's data even after the reinstall. Just make sure you aren't formatting the S: drive at the Windows installation screen.

Sweet, as long as I can access the data on my S:/ drive, that is all that matters. Thanks again!
