Because the default permissions of a share is always Everyone, Full Control; it would probably be easier to just recreate your shares afresh after the format. Unless you have a dozen shares.

Could you clarify this?
In such case I can just share that data worth everyone as ntfs permissions will be present for real acl.

This my question actually for which I want clarification.

The actual data is stored on non os drive.. In another partition.
