This is a probably simple question but after a couple hours searching the net this morning I can't get a definitive answer.
I have a computer I built that has two separate physical HDDs. On the first HDD, I have some programs and the Vista 64 OS.
On the other HDD, I have a ton of data and a Windows image backup.
What I would like to do is a clean install of Vista on the C: (HDD #1) and leave all my data on the D: (HDD :2).
Where I run into the "issue" is that when clicking on the Backup and Restore center it says:
"Your computer's hard disks will be reformatted and all user data and programs will be replaced with the data and programs on your backups"
I thought by having the two separate physical HDD's I would prevent ALL the data on the computer from being erased?
Any help would be appreciate....Thanks !
