Since you are reinstalling your Toshiba the steps are here to get and keep a perfect Clean Reinstall Factory OEM Windows 7 including how to know which partitions to keep (I'd delete them all once you're sure you've backed up all data) and whether you want to create a data partition to keep your data separate so the System Image you back up after install (to use in place of future reinstalls) is smaller.

Be sure to follow the steps for how drivers are handled in Win7 which are so important they're printed in red, and not at all like previous OS's.
