I have my wampserver installed on D:\wamp. Will i still be able to run wamp after i format c:\ (windows drive) ONLY?

If NOT, what are the options to keep my old php.ini settings and databases? Is backup of old wamp folder, which I replace after the format an option?

I really dont want to dump all of my databases and rewrite al php.ini settings.

I think that wamp servers - mysql, apache etc are installed as services and even if they are'nt chances are that wamp won't work after reinstalling the OS. You should make a backup copy your php.ini and backup your mysql databases. I use mysqldum for backing up mysql.
