D should not be affected if you make the right choices during the reinstallation (I guess that is what you are going to do?).

But you should back up whatever is on D in case something goes wrong. I'm guessing D is where you may have data?

I have the same partition C and D drive and the installation always write on drive C. I had previously made a back up of my files on D drive, but the installation didn't erase any files.

Here is a tutorial on doing a clean installation of Windows 7:

Clean Install Windows 7

You can back up your important data from D by simply using the mouse and copying folders and files to another drive (probably external) or to a USB thumb drive. Or you could even use a DVD. The point is to protect yourself from data loss if something goes wrong during the installation attempt---such as formatting the wrong partition and wiping out everything on the D partition.
