Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and in need of advice please!
I am having a few registry problems with Vista and so wanted to wipe it and
reinstall. Plus I have a lot of junk on it so I think it's time for a clean
My question/concern is this: I have a number of partitions that I am scared
of losing. I have a Dell Vista OS Reinstall disc, which I assume I can just
stick in and begin format and reinstallon onto drive C: (which currently
contains my Vista OS). My partitions were made with Vista (not 3rd party
software) and I manage them with the Computer Management tool. What confuses
me is the different type of partitions - I have M: Music, V: Videos, S:
Software etc. These are all 'Logical Drives', which I have read come from an
'Extended Partition'. So I am scared that because they are Logical Drives
that I will maybe lose them if they are somehow linked to C:?
I've uploaded a screenshot of my Computer Management info here:
so please have a
look and advise me!
