Basically Sony Recovery CD 1 is design to reinstall the operation system which is Window XP Home edition by doing so it will format the hard drive. Yes you should partitation the hard drive if you haven't yet, good idea is to split the partiation into C:/ & D:/ Just in case in the future you have a virus & can't not log in into Window which is primary C:/ You can use D:/ logical partition to recover your files. hope That helps
