Question about Dell Inspiron 600M Notebook
Will I lose my software and data files if I do a clean install of the operating system?
Unfortunately, yes. If you have a burner, you can burn the data files to disc, but the software program files will have to be reinstalled. What I generally recommend is that when doing an operating system install, you create a separate partition on during the set up, this way you can transfer any data that you want to keep into this partition in case you need to reload the operating system. If you already have a partition you can transfer the data, if not this will be a good time to set one up. A partition can only be set up during an operating system install. You can also save driver and software program setup in this partition for future installs so you don'e have to search for drivers or discs. Kind of a long winded answer, but hopefully it helped. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.
