How Can I Clean Install Windows 10 Without Loosing My Files. by srrrr(m): 3:40pm On May 09, 2018
I want to know if I can partition my hard disk, send my files to the new partition, clean install windows and recover the files back. I don't have an external hard drive.
The size of the disk is 750gb and I want to clean install windows 10. I'm scared of loosing my files.
I know how to partition very well, but I want to know if my files will be safe in the second partition, and if the windows 10 can recognize the D drive after installing it. Or it will just wipe the whole files a merge the partitions.
If anyone can help me (maybe with any link), it would be of help.
I upgraded my windows 10 pro from the 2015 version to 2017 version using the iso file. while installing I choose the option to keep my files, but wipe my apps and settings. After installing I tried using driverpack to drive it (I've used the driverpack before and it worked fine), it didn't work as supposed (though some drivers installed successfully).
My system started misbehaving, PES2017 no longer worked and some processes were disrupted because my system was now asking for administrative permission (but I'm the owner). Files no longer copy to some folders/directories because of admin permissions.
I went online and read some articles, so I was able to force administrative permission through the C drive (security tab). But this solved the permission issue and my Pes works great now, but it brought more problems.
"Search" only work when I'm online, miscrosoft edge don't launch at all, sometimes when I turn the system on, while trying to input my password the screen freezes until I hold down the power button and turn it back on.
I've updated my windows through "update and security", tried many cmd methods I saw online (I can't remember the names), but nothing worked.
My friend used the same iso file and it worked well (though he Clean installed it).
I would have returned to the former windows 10, but I was too excited at the beginning to the extent that I wiped my old windows folder

You can do a clean format and still have your files

I want to know if windows will be able to recognize my D drive (the one containing the data partition) after formatting.
I'm also scared that windows might wipe all the data and merge the two partitions

Depends on who is doing the installation of the windows

Go ahead....channel the fresh windows to drive C:...windows have no business merging the partitions if you don't instruct it to
