I have C&D drives on XP Pro. I really need to do a format (don't ask). If I do a C format will it also wipe my D. All I have on C is my OS but D holds everything I need and I am loathe to lose it. Thank you for any help.

no just put in your windows cd and follow instructions for new install. then when it asks where to place new windows directory delete c drive and the format new drive c: do not touch d drive and all will be well

If you are still unsure about what you are doing, you could unplug the D: to ensure you won't lose the data.
