Will all my stuff get deleted with this?

Hey,

I'm having a few troubles as some of you may have seen in another section of the forum, and in need to clean my disk drive using this tutorial:

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

All i want to know is.. I have drives like C:\ , E:\ , F: , will cleaning my drive delete ALL of the information on ALL of these partitions or will it just clean C:\? I ask because I have programs and games on my F: drive.

Thanks

Hello Samage,

The "clean" and "clean all" command will delete all partitions on a physical disk (hard drive).

Hope this helps,
Shawn
