Hi people. New to repartitioning as you can tell... Atm I only have 1 partition with windows on it. I plan to do clean install and repartition the drive on few smaller partittion. I plan to delete this one partition and then create few smaller ones and install windows in one. I'm wondering if in this case the whole hd will be reformatted or just the partition where I install windows? Do I have to manually format each partition after I install windows xp using right click on the partitions... If the other partitions that I create during install are not gonna get reformatted during the xp installation, I'm wondering if any data like malware can survive it. There is this small window between after the install and then the process of right-clicking and formatting each partition... Thanks.
