    Windows 10 recovery doesnt wipe my hard-disk


    I want to clean re-install windows on my PC. I've already backed up all the files I want onto an external drive, and simply want to wipe ALL files on my internal drive and ssd. I want to then cleanly re-install windows and essentially start from scratch.

    I went to settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Reset this PC and selected remove everything. I changed the settings to remove all files from all drives but when I click "show me the list of drives that will be affected" only "D:" drive is listed. The first time round, when I did this, it only removed everything from my C: drive (the way I intended).

    However as seen in my disk management - I want to remove the (disk 0 partition 2) which has the system partition in it. I don't know why this drive now has my system partition either.

    Good day

    By installing the new Windows 10, will my hard disk be wiped?

    Or will all my data be kept on my CPU after the installation?

    Thank you
