WE have been experiencing many issues with our server, when it would initially lose connection with the Printer. This escalated to the Printer Properties hanging, then the Devices and Printers, and now the Control Panel hangs whenever we try to access Devices and Printers (all other functions work fine).
Additionally, other PCs on the network are having issues communicating with the Server in this state, requiring a refresh of the program in order to boot and respond correctly. No other solutions have been able to resolve the issues, so it's getting to the stage where a OS reinstall is required.
However, I don't want to wipe the hard drive, since there are many other files on there that are needed, so I just want to re-install the OS. Can I wipe (delete) the partition(s) that has the OS installed, without affecting the rest of the PC, and if so, which one(s)?
