I have backed up my User files from my C OS drive to my D drive. Wondering if Windows Reset deletes everything on all drives connected or just the OS drive.

I don't want to keep my stuff, want to start with a fresh Windows, but It's kind of difficult for me to detach my other HDD right now

It's not supposed to, but it's better to just disconnect everything but the C: drive to be safe.

No it will not unless you link the old HDD to your C drive.

So I decided to be brave/dangerous an just go forward with it and it gave me an option to clear Just the C drive or All drives so I guess that solves that question
