Does Server Reinstall format the primary data partition? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have some serious problems with my WHS install, and am contemplating a server reinstallation.  But I'd like to keep the primary data partition on the OS drive formatted in 64k blocks (primary usage for this PC is a Sage media server).  If I perform a Server Reinstall, is that partition reformatted?  Or does the Server Reinstall only format the C drive?

  • No, it does not. But I haven't reformatted with 64 k blocks, so I can't tell you if that will cause problems.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
