    format c

    Hi all just need to ask
    I am reformatting my c drive due to constant bsod after the w10 anniversary update . things I have done are every scan thire is sfc, hdd check, memtest, up dater all drivers , had Microsoft install the update 3 times.
    the bsod mostly happen playing games , so I have uninstalled origin and all games and reinstalled them all again.
    I never had a problem with w10 1511 ,and its been over 10 days so I just cant roll it back.
    so back to the ? a few of my games in origin are on my g/ drive ssd and others are on my f/drive .so if I reformat my c will origin find them or is thire something I need to do?
    also music is on h/drive ,will windows media find them?
    sorry if I am not wording it correctly.

    Data stored off the C drive will have no effect with a OS reinstall. After the reinstall you will have to point to where the data is stored for what ever app/software wants to use them. Once that it done it should access them like they were on the C drive.
