    (D:) Drive?


    Hello. I was wondering something about the (D drive. If i ever have to reboot my computer out of want or need
    will the (D drive save everything i have stored in it? (For example i reinstall windows.) I personally found this drive very interesting and it has hell of space. Now i don't plan to go crazy and store silly stuff like online games i can easily go redownload (despite the fact i have very poot internet) but stuff like pictures ,small music packs,and stuff like that.
    I ask this because i am putting my computer in the shop and they are going to ......open it... so they can replace the
    fan. The thought for some reasons makes me a slightly unhinged but it must be done. I feel i will walk in when they are
    finished that my computer has been refreshed and i've lost everything. It's a nightmare to me cause i have alot of
    important stuff on my laptop.Maybe i can log on and store things before the fan starts making that noise again.

    You can reset or refresh windows and keep the date on the D drive (partition) as long as you DO NOT reset the partitions.. ALWAYS choose keep current partitions..

    It is also very wise to create a backup of your DATA and PC
