I am going to be doing my winter break os wipe soon, and I figured I would ask this simple question and see if I could save myself a headache in the future.

If I partition my OS SSD, leave my OS on one partition and install all of my files (office, visual studio..etc) on the other, if I wipe windows and reinstall it again, will it still be able to recognize all the files on my other partition? It almost sounds to good to be true since I am sure it installs files on the OS drive that are needed to be ran, but I figured i'd ask.

uhh, no, your documents and stuff will be intact but you will have to reinstall most of your programs.
