I have a 3-months old Dell laptop, which I need to do a factory reset for, using the recovery partition.
Since I don't have an external HDD available, in order to backup everything I needed (roughly 95 GB), I shrunk my C drive by 100 GB and created a secondary partition, and just moved my files there.
Now, if I remember correctly, unlike windows disc-installation, it won't let me choose which drive to format and install the new OS on, it'll just delete everything and restore it to the state it was in when I first got it.
Since both drives are on the same HDD, will it actually be deleted? (the secondary drive). If yes, what can I do to "tell it" not to touch that drive?
