    Is it OK to reformat a SSD? When I Install Windows 10 I want to do a clean install. What is the preparation for doing that.

    Sure, you can format an SSD.

    When you install Win 10 (if you have the installation program on CD or USB stick) you can chose to do a "custom" install where you select the drive (the SSD) and Windows will delete the partitions/format and do a clean install for you. See this tutorial Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums[1]=General Tips

    If the SSD is not the boot drive (i.e. just another drive on your computer) you could go to File Explorer click on "Computer" and then right-click on the SSD drive and select "Format" from the options.
