hiya all, I installed windows on my 200gb harddrive which I split into two partitions which both have letter names. The first partition was only for installing programs and for windows and the second was purely for my data. The Disk Management program in windows state that there both basic type but only the first partition is system. My question is am I able to delete only the first partition and reinstall windows while keeping my data partition intact or do I have to reformat the whole drive?
