hi,i have a 500gig seagate hard drive.consisting of a 145gig local disc/C (operating system is on the C/ section) and a 320gig local disc/D...the D/ section is not formatted so i cannot use it as yet..my question is if i format the D/ section of the drive,will this also delete the data on the C/ section of the drive?..and will i need to reinstall my operating system?? i have created a system restore image on an external drive already,any help is much appreciated...thanks.!!
