A non-destructive system recovery should not format your drive. BUT, I'm not real familiar with the HP recovery software - read the descriptions carefully!
The first priority, no matter what restore option you choose, should be to backup your data.
Then, a full recovery will reset the system (and will delete your data). If you run a non-destructive system recovery, you'll likely retain your data - BUT, should anything go wrong, you may lose your data - so the backup is advisable.
