    Hi all just need to ask
    I am reformatting my c drive due to constant bsod after the w10 anniversary update . things I have done are every scan thire is sfc, hdd check, memtest, up dater all drivers , had Microsoft install the update 3 times.
    the bsod mostly happen playing games , so I have uninstalled origin and all games and reinstalled them all again.
    I never had a problem with w10 1511 ,and its been over 10 days so I just cant roll it back.
    so back to the ? a few of my games in origin are on my g/ drive ssd and others are on my f/drive .so if I reformat my c will origin find them or is thire something I need to do?
    also music is on h/drive ,will windows media find them?
    sorry if I am not wording it correctly.

    :)

    Mistakenly Format C Drive

    Probably Windows 10 was activated on this laptop, so you need only to reinstall Windows 10. You can create bootable media HERE. You don't need type
    in any product key during installation on that laptop, it will be activated automatically anyway.

  3. N97 mini - format C:

    You cannot remove all apps from C, but if you go to settings-application mngr-installed apps- and scroll through your apps, select one that is on C, options-uninstall. Facebook and accuweather are two you can remove and then re-install on E mass memory !

    Data stored off the C drive will have no effect with a OS reinstall. After the reinstall you will have to point to where the data is stored for what ever app/software wants to use them. Once that it done it should access them like they were on the C drive.
