Default System Recovery

New here, so please bare with me.

I want to do a system recovery to wipe my C drive, I also have a second hard drive installed. I started to do it, but I thought it would prompt me as to which drive I wanted to do it on, and it didn't, so the computer restarted and then when it said it was starting the recovery, I quickly shut down the computer(with the button, I know, not supposed to, but I got very nervous). I stored everything I wanted to save on the second drive, so I don't want that to be wiped. Will this recovery wipe both drives? Do I have to disconnect the second drive so it's not touched??

Please help...I wanted to do this tonight.

It should prompt you but if you're so worried just go ahead and pull the cable on the other hard drive.
