Hi all, I am going to do a fresh install on my laptop. The laptop has 2 hard drives, the C drive and a D drive.

If I move everything over to the D drive then do a fresh install and format the C drive will all the data stored on the D drive be kept after the install?

The reason I want to do this is because I dont have an external HDD to move all my files onto.

Hope someone can help?
