I want to reformat my main partition that has windows drive(C:). I was wondering if i were to reformat drive (C:) to re install windows, will the data in my other partitions/drives (D:), (E:), (F:) be erased?

No - the data in your other partitions will not be deleted.

Name the C Drive to something you can remember then when you reinstall windows you will see that name listed in the Partition Selection Window. Are those other drives physical drives ie not part of C?
