Moved to D: 'User' files be deleted when I reformat C: partition?
Oh God, the title has a short character limit, I can't make myself very clear in the title. So, PLEASE READ my question.
I'm planning to re-install my OS and I'm backing-up my files. Right now my 'User' files (Desktop, Downloads, My Pictures, My Music, My Documents, and My Videos) are currently located in D: (I used the 'Location' tab in the properties to move each folder from C: to D: ) Now, my question is: Would my 'User' files that are currently located in D:, be deleted when I reformat and re-install my OS in my system partition (which is C: )?
This came into my mind because in my understanding of moving the 'User' files using the 'Location' tab, means that the files and folders are stored in D:, but still linked in C:
