I have a symbolic link in C drive to a location on D drive. If I delete the C drive partition or format C drive, will it delete/destroy the files on D drive? I run windows 7

No, it won't, just like deleting a symlink manually won't affect the originals. The actual files remain completely in the D: drive.
