    Does reinstalling Windows 10 on my C partition affect other partitions


    I am a relatively inexperienced computer user and am having many crashes at present, with various reasons given for the crashes. I am contemplating doing a reinstall of Windows 10 and saving no files,etc - a clean install! If I do this will the contents of my partitions named D, F and G, be affected by the reinstallation or will they remain the same with no changes?

    No, it does not affect anything in other drives. You try reset first. If it does not solve your problems, then format drive c and reinstall.
